I am trying to delete a category in the store app and it won't let me. I tried the directions listed above, but I get an error message that says the category is in use (not true). Any other suggestions??

They no longer show when viewing the store but they are still listed in the manage categories window.

Hi RW3667066,

I apologize this thread has some out dated instructions and I'll get it removed.

I did receive a message back and at this time, there is an issue where the system will now allow us to delete them, but it's being worked on. Our developers are in the process of creating a much improved update to the Simplestore which will have a fix for this. I do not yet have a date for when the update will be released but will likely be a few more months down the road. Sorry that I do not have an immediate fix for this.
