http://www.rockypointfishingservices.com  I'd like to get rid of that word Uncategorized, but I don't want to replace it, I just want it to go away. How can I do that, please?

It's an item as part of the menu. Whether or not you can easily edit the menu, and how to do it, depends partly on the theme you're using.

Despite the above, see if you can do it under Appearance > Menus in the dashboard.

If it comes to it, it can be hidden using CSS, which isn't too complicated but takes a bit of explaining.

From Appearance > Menus, select the menu to edit (might be Top Menu?), and see if you can select and delete the unwanted menu item (by selecting it under the Menu Structure section of the page, and clicking remove).

Hi,

You can just simply hide with class like:

.cat-item-1
{
display:none;
}

Thanks

Pradeep, where do I add that class?  Here? http://www.rockypointfishingservices.com/wp-content/themes/Divi/style.css?ver=2.7.9

Thanks. I tried the appearance>menu, and no luck.

A neat way to do that is to install a custom css plugin "Simple Custom CSS" or "My Custom CSS", and then put the CSS code in the css page in the admin section of the site that the plugin adds. It'll either be in the main admin menu, or under the Settings menu.

Hi- I added it to style.css, before the section on ul and li tags, but it isn't taking the class away. Could you have a look please?

.cat-item-1
{
display:none;
}

The style is being loaded, but is being overridden by a higher specifity style setting, being:

#top-menu li {
    display: inline-block;
}

Open in new window


To resolve this, change:
.cat-item-1
{
display:none;
}

Open in new window

to:
#top-menu > .cat-item-1 {
    display: none;
}

Open in new window

best way is to use Terry Woods suggestion and install "simple Custom CSS" , activate it then under appearance there is a new menu option "custom CSS" then add the style overrides will be the last to get invoked.

if you change style.css it may get overridden when the template is updated   the plugin method will stop this.

Hi- sorry, I should have explained this yesterday- Divi builder doesn't allow any plug-ins to be installed. So I can't use that.
