How do I rename categories?

In Edit mode I can change the name of the categories, but when I'm on the /Manage/Categories page it still shows the old name. Suggestions?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Current process

When you edit a category page and edit the name in the "Title" field it doesn't change the category's name (<category name>). Instead, it only changes the display name of the category- here is an example:

Block Image

In order to change the category name you will need to create a new category with your desired name: use the category manager...

<your site>

to create the new category with the desired name.

Then copy all the information from the original category page.

  • Title
  • Summary
  • Body content
  • Category image

Then, click save on your new category page.

Next, delete everything off the original category page (this will effectively remove it from the category hierarchy).

Upcoming Feature

We will be adding a feature to automate this process. From the category manager you will be able to simply rename a category to a new category name (assuming it is available).

We are also working on a delete function for categories.

Help Docs

For more information on the category pages refer to the category page help docs.

Is there a current feature that allows a category to be renamed or is the process outlined above still the standard for renaming an existing category?


Am I right in thinking there is still no easy way to rename categories, other than creating a new category and duplicating guides into it?

I would like to retain revision history for my guides and avoid having to go through the review process again. Cheers
