Deleting Taxonomy Categories

Prerequisites: See Taxonomy Prerequisites for details.

Deleting a taxonomy category removes the category, its localized versions and children, and all its associations with content items.

The CMS cannot restore deleted categories. Removing a parent category permanently deletes the category and its descendants.
To delete a taxonomy category:
  1. Navigate to Administration > Taxonomy.
  2. Locate the category to delete.
  3. Hover over the category. The plus (+) and minus (-) buttons display.

    Delete Taxonomy Category

  4. Click the minus (-) button.
  5. Click OK to confirm the deletion. The CMS deletes the category and children.
