@mitch-rezman Mitch, you recommended she “turn off” the ornaments category. I must admit that I have categories that I now don’t want to use, but that Google has already indexed. What do YOU mean by “turn off” the category?
I’ve also got categories that I need to change the name a bit, but am afraid to do that for fear of messing up some permanent url structure that I don’t quite understand. Plus, Google’s indexed over 2,500 pages in the past couple of months, so just the sheer numbers kind of overwhelm me.
Nevertheless, I’m thinking I need to “turn off” some of those indexed categories and change the parent of some of my categories, and organize them a bit better.
Will my deleting categories that had parents and children mess things up? Is there a way to fix them like I want them and then press some button and magically make it all reset? Yeah, I’m looking for the easy button, lol.
(I’m only half through with cleaning up a massive mess with all my video posts not showing up after a plugin kersplashed with another plugin… hate it when that happens, lol).
So, Sherry, thanks for asking for help on your site, as all this great feedback is helping me, too. Plus, reminding me of certain things I need to go back and fix on my site, too.
Don’t you just love this awesome, helpful crowd here in the Clubs? Great folks!
