Hope you gurus can help me... Read tons of posts here and couldn't find an answer -- and I'm not a database chic which doesn't help.
So what I did was some category clean up, by deleting some categories and without as many childs. Deleted categories and moved all the posts to the categories they were to be in but now my XML site map is still reflecting the childs and they are not listed in the control panel for me to delete. An example of an old child in my site map:
Of course this pulls a 404. I would like to have my site map not reflect these. Can anyone spoon feed me on what to do?
My humble gratitude in advance for any help offered...
