I can't delete the categories in Wordpress
On my blog I have few categories which I am not using anymore. They have 0 posts and I want to delete them but when deleting the categories they are not being deleted.
Here is the screenshot when I hit the delete button - http://i.imgur.com/7EHsCqI.jpg
It just stuck there and doesn't delete categories, when I refresh the page the categories are still there.
How can I delete them? I need to delete them because in Google Webmaster Tools I am getting error message about these categories.
I don't suppose that category is the default category, just renamed, is it?
It might just be the default category.
Go to "Settings" and then "Writing" and set a default category (other than the one that you can't delete) then try again.
No, the default category is "uncategorized", I don't have any post in that category.
I installed a plugin wp-cleanfix and it deleted all those categories for me.
But I still don't understand why they were unable to delete in the first place.
Ah, it's just more often than not, people cannot delete the categories as they've set them as the default category.
Chances are, it's a plugin that is interfering with the "delete category" process.
Did you try with another browser? There is a small possibility that it is a browser related issue.

^ Nope, I was using Firefox and didn't think of changing browser because tags were deleting fine just categories were not getting deleted.
I have got the issue fixed now so can't check it now.
