Hi Peter.,
Log into the dashboard of the website, after you get there, on the left click post, and you will see a drop down menu, it will have categories on it , click on that, you will see all the categories you have created on the right, Click the box of the one you want to delete, make sure you have the right one, then at the top you will see Bulk Actions click there and click delete, and then click apply, Hope this helps and you are are having a great time here at Wealthy Affiliate best wishes VickiG

Hi Vicki, I couldn't delete the category "Related Books". It was the only category, so I renamed it "Uncategorized". Any other categories I create will be deleted, leaving "Uncategorized" by default. I just renamed it and the slug and it worked.

Thank you for your help. Hope you have a wonderful Easter! :)
