  • On my wiki, I have a category called "Guest Hosts."  While editing a page, I accidentally typo'd "Guests Hosts," and now I can't find any way to remove this tag or this category from the wiki.  http://fairpointpodcast.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Guests_Hosts

    It says that I am supposed to remove the category tag from all pages in my wiki, but I can't find any way to remove category tags when I try to edit articles on my wiki.  The categories seem to be stuck there once you've saved them.  This is the article that says this:  http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Category#How_to_delete_category_pages  It also says that there should be an option to delete the category page when you're editing, but I cannot find that either.

    • I took a screenshot to show you since it's kind of hard to explain:
      Help finding category

      See where the red circles are on the bottom right corner? That's where you can remove categories. I hope that helps!

    • Click the "Edit" button on the article, you aren't using the new VisualEditor (based on the article's history) so on the right side of the edit page you should see a section called "Categories" (if you don't see it you need to uncollapse the side rail by clicking the arrow on the right side of the edit space). In this section, hover over the category and you should see a little trashcan icon appear to the right of the category name. Click it, the category will be deleted, and you can save the page.

      Ya'll forgot to mention that the category module needs to be ticked in preferences for that to appear. Otherwise, it should just be a hyperlink on the page known as [[Category:whatever]]

      I can assume Parkour know this now, though, so yeah.

      If on the simple, mobile skin, you need to click the pencil icon on the last section of the article, and there lists categories. You can add, modify or remove categories over there.

      Do you mean Mercury (the default skin for mobile devices)? I wasn't even aware you could edit using the Mercury skin. Even when viewing using Mercury, I get switched to Oasis (the default skin for non-mobile devices) for editing.

      I know it's called Mercury. I just said "simple mobile skin" in case if he didn't know what the skin is called.

      I meant the categories shown at the bottom of the main page

    • Oh. Well, there is a script in the Dev Wiki called HideMainPageCategories, where I came up with that idea a while ago. It hides the categories in the main page.

    • I'm on Ipad and I want to remove a category from an article, how do I do this?

    • For sure you can do it if using source mode. Just expand the editor's side bar (if it is collapsed), expand the categories section (if it is collapsed), and tap the trash can next to the category you want to remove.

    • Pages can also be added to categories via templates and magic words. If categories do not show up in the article itself, look for these. On rare occasion, a page might be "baked" into a category under-the-hood, for which you have to fill a bug report.

    • You can also delete it from source mode.
