Renaming, deleting, and merging tags and categories

You can bulk-edit a page's categories and tags in the Advanced tab of Page Settings. This is a great way to rename categories or tags added to multiple items, remove unused categories or tags, or merge multiple categories or tags into one.

Follow this guide to manage categories and tags in these pages:

Before you begin

Categories and tags are managed per-page (for example, per individual Blog Page, Products Page, or Gallery Page). It isn't possible to bulk-edit the same categories or tags across multiple pages or your whole site. If you have multiple pages with categories or tags, repeat these steps for each page.

Open Advanced Page Settings

  1. In the Home Menu, click Pages.
  2. Hover over the page and click the gear icon to open Page Settings.
  3. Click Advanced.

Rename a category or tag

To change the category or tag text:

  1. In the Advanced tab, click Categories or Tags.
  2. Click the category or tag you want to change.
  3. Click Edit and rename the category or tag.
  4. Click Save.

The change will apply to every instance of that category or tag on the page.

Delete a category or tag

To remove a category or tag:

  1. In the Advanced tab, click Categories or Tags.
  2. Click to select the category or tag you want to delete. If you want to delete multiple categories or tags, click to select additional ones. Check marks appear beside selected categories or tags.
  3. Click Delete, then click Confirm in the message that appears.

The category or tag will be removed from every item on the page where it appeared.

Tip: For tags, you can also hover over an individual tag and click the that appears to delete it.

Merge categories or tags

To merge two or more categories or tags:

  1. In the Advanced tab, click Categories or Tags.
  2. Click the categories or tags you want to merge. Check marks appear beside selected categories or tags.
  3. Click Merge and enter the new name for the merged categories or tags.
  4. Click Merge again.

All items with the selected categories or tags will have the new category or tag.

Update category or tag links

Renaming or merging categories and tags updates the the specific item or page, but not links based on those categories and tags. To avoid broken links, manually update any links and Summary Blocks related to the categories and tags you changed.

For example, if you have a Gallery Page using the category "wedding flowers 2017," and you rename it "wedding 2017," tagged photos will update to the new category. However, you would need to manually update the new category in a Summary Block with a category filter.
