Support » Fixing WordPress » Getting rid of 'categories' from menu bar

  • Hello All,

    I have overcome my fear of WordPress and managed to build a site I feel happy with…just one tiny issue.

    On my menu bar, alongside links to all the pages I have created, there is the option ‘Categories’. I would like to get rid of this entirely so that it does not show up….any ideas how I can do that?

    Thanks a million!

    Unless you provide a link to a page demonstrating the problem, no one will be able to offer much in the way of assistance.

    I am new to websites and WordPress myself. There are two places I know of to address this problem. Both in the Dashboard of course. One is under Pages and the other is under Appearance. See if you have an extra Page named Categories. Also see if you have a Menu option under Appearance. If you have an extra page named Categories, try deleting it. If your Menu under Appearance is set up to display Pages, then see if you have one named Categories there. Either place try deleting it. As far as I know it is listed in one of those two places in order to show up on your site’s menu. Hope that works!

    jdsigmon – no, no pages marked ‘Categories’ or anything with this name on the menu….thanks though!

    Yeah, the link to my website is
