How to hide “uncategorized” from Hamburger menu?

(Markus) #1

is there some way, maybe due a CSS hack, to hide the “uncategorized” category?
This category is disabled by default. It has no content and couldn’t be removed at all.


Thank you


If #uncategorized is disabled, then non-staff users will not see it in the hamburger menu, but staff will see it regardless of the setting (not sure why though :slightly_smiling_face:).

But if you want to hide it from your staff too, then here is CSS code to hide it:

.category-uncategorized {
    display: none;

Probably stupid question, but could you tell me where I should add this CSS code into?

Thanks a lot.




Go to Admin > Customize > Themes and create a new theme and then click on Edit CSS/HTML and add the CSS code under Common > CSS. Finally make the new theme a component under your default theme. Hope this helps! :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you for quick answer!

I hope I did everything correctly, but it doesn’t work :frowning: I’m total noob in this :frowning: sorry, here is the image of CSS included:



Ok you’ve done the first step. Now you need to add the new theme as a component for your default theme like so:

Thank you for quick answer, I did it but no result … I still see it even as normal user (not like admin). :frowning:


Hmmm… this looks correct to me, not sure what’s going on. Is your site private? If not, I’d be happy to take a look for you.
