Is it possible to delete an empty root category once accidentally created or not required anymore? It looks like there's no "Delete" button.

You can delete a root category, if no store has been assigned to it. Check System > Manage Stores

  • Thanks. My problem was that I had some store groups with website_id set to 0. So they were not visible at admin but still were locking their root categories from being deleted. Commented Feb 18, 2013 at 12:11
