Hey, there!

Peter here from Shopify Support!

To permanently remove a tag from your admin, you'll need to ensure that the tag is removed from any product that it's currently applied to. Below are the steps on how to achieve this!

  1. Open up your products within the admin.
  2. Click on the small white box to select your products. Note: If you have more than 50+ products, then you'll want to select (Select all 50+ products) that will appear to the right after you select the white box.
  3. Select "Actions."
  4. Click on "Remove Tags."

 

Once you've processed these steps, you'll be greeted by a white container that has a text box where you can enter the tags you wish to remove. Simply insert the tags here, select "Apply Changes" and that should remove the tags from the filter list found on your website!

If this wasn't what you were after, or if you have any other questions then feel free to reply back and I'll happily help out! 

All the best, 

Peter

Hey Peter,

 

I'm having this issue where I have two tags "ABC-12345" and "ABC 12345". I want to remove "ABC-12345" and am able to click on the tag to add like the above example, but I cannot select "apply changes" button to remove it, or any other the other tags.

 

On a side note, when I click "ABC-12345", it shows products under "ABC 12345" on my website. Since these two are the same, I am trying to remove "ABC-12345" but am having difficulty.

 

Any help to figure this out would be much appreciated. 

 

Thanks,

Ken

Hi there @kensugai @John_and_Debbie @Peter 

I think I know how to resolve this problem. :) 

Go in all products and MARK ALL of them. So when on one page you can only mark 50 but then there is a small text to the right of the 'action' field asking if you want to MARK ALL products. 

After marking all products to go into actions and remove the two tags in your case. This is done by scrolling down and clicking on both the tags. 

Proceed -> apply changes.   Then the store should have compelety forgotten BOTH tags and you can now add the relevant tag to your products again. 

Hope this helps 

Kind regards

Your instructions worked as expected within Shopify, but the changes are not updating on my website. Any suggestions?

Same here. No more tags in shopify but on the website, the tag is still showing in "Filter By" (which of course, if selected will say "0 products"

Hey, @LaskoBrands@Rocking!

 

If the tag has been entirely removed from the admin, then there is a possibility that it's a system caching issue. For this, I can flush the frontend cache of your store which should resolve the issue. I've sent both of you an email to get this looked into. 

 

Chat soon!

I actually solved this on my own by clearing the cache on my Chrome browser.

I'm amazed that a Shopify support ticket was created based on this post.

I thought this was just a community forum.

Thanks, Peter! You can mark my ticket as solved.

I'm having the same problem. The tags still show on "Filter By" dropdown even though I've removed them from all products. Please advise. Thanks!
