How do I delete a category?

By Shadow @shadow2016-12-12 22:56:52.103Z

I created some categories I don't want and I can't figure out how to delete them. Can someone help me do that? Thank you.

    Hi Shadow, for now, go to the categories page, and click the category, then click Edit Category, and then you can set it to Staff only (there's a checkbox for that) — then no one will see it (except for staff).

    I think there should be a way to really delete a category, too, but I haven't implemented that. What do you think should happen with all topics in the category? I suppose they should be soft-deleted ... and with that I mean that when you delete a category, everything in it, gets deleted, too — but later, if you un-delete the category, everything in it, will get undeleted, too. What do you think?

    [Edit] Now I've implemented deletion-of-categories, see my other comment.[/Edit]

      Now deletion-of-categories has been implemented. Click the Edit category button, then in the edit dialog, there's a Delete category button, which deletes it. One deleted, an undo button appears so it can be undeleted.

      Deleting a category deletes all topics therein, until the category is undeleted, then the topics get undeleted too.
