Delete all categories/subcats without deleting posts


(Emily Malkin) #1

Hi-

Trying a big rearrangement of our forum. Whereas topics had been parsed out into categories and subcats, I’d now like no formal organisation, just the latest posts at the top. I know I can set default view to list newest topics, but I’d like the categories themselves to disappear too.

What’s the easiest way to do this? Thanks!

Move all of the topics into their new categories, then you can delete the category. There’ll be a handy link to the oldest topic in the category where the “delete category” button would otherwise go.

But what if I wouldn’t like any categories at all? Just a list of topics.

Move them all into the special “uncategorized” category then.

Or hide the categories from the topic list. (that may actually be easier for you)
