Ticket #20793 - [BLOG] delete blog category

is it possible to delete blog category? It is not recomended by our SEO agency to have url like domain/blog/category/post-name so we want to delete category of blog or to delete it from URL.

Is it possible?

Hi, Igor Kes.
Have you tried to delete blog category in your back office? it should work

Igor Kes 17 Feb 2021, 07:07

But if I want to add a blog post I need to set a post category - field is required, you cannot add a post without it. So this is a problem.

Could you please take a screenshot of the category you want to delete?

Igor Kes 17 Feb 2021, 10:34

Hi, I don't want any category to be in the blog. I just want to have URL domain/blog/post-title not domain/blog/category/post-title.

But anyway i am sending screenshot in attachement where you see a notice that i am getting when i try to delete news category.
