I have deleted “service” category in the setting but it still displays in the home screen as shown in the image below. How can I remove this “service” category from being displayed?
Please disable third-party plugins and customizations (if there are any) and check if this issue persists. If you use a caching plugin, make sure that caching is disabled for logged-in users. Also, please try to re-save the categories in WP Dashboard > Listings > Categories.
I hope this is helpful to you.
I have disabled any third-party plugins and re-saved the category setting, but [services] category still exists in the search box.
If you have completed all these steps, then most likely it is caching on the part of the hosting provider, I recommend that you review the settings or contact support.
