Purging Categories

Prerequisites: Users require site administrator permissions to complete this task.

Purging categories permanently deletes categories and their children from the Cartella database. You can purge individual or all deleted categories.
Purged categories cannot be restored. Purging a parent category permanently deletes the category and its descendants.
Cartella only purges deleted (dimmed) categories in the tree.
If your database becomes excessively large, purging may improve Cartella’s performance.

  1. Log in to Cartella.
  2. Navigate to Settings > Categories.
  3. Click View Deleted.

    Click View Deleted

  4. Choose one of the following steps.
