Well as the title says, I have a category on the home page, Sale Items to name it that I cannot edit or delete because it is not showing in the admin panel for categories, any ideas?

Don't ask me how, problem resolved by itself, category disapeared from home page.

Welcome Claude E! Glad to see you made it to the forums.

The "category" named Sale Items is not a proper category. It is a state of the pricing of the products - an alternate price that is lower, but not zero, compared to the regular price.

CubeCart has two "sale" modes: a globally-applied fixed percent amount deducted from the assigned price across all items of inventory, and a per-product variable sale price assigned to each individual item of inventory. Even when the per-product mode is selected, there could be, in fact, no items that have a sale price applied.

CubeCart will display the Sale Items on the category navigation bar when there are inventory items that can be purchased at the sale price: either globally calculated or per-product assigned. Otherwise, Sale Items will not be seen on the category navigation bar.

There is also another not-proper category: the Gift Certificates - when this feature is enabled.

CubeCart has a "caching" system. CubeCart pre-builds the category navigation bar (it is computationally complicated) and caches the completed HTML code. Thus, having made changes in admin that would/could affect what appears on the category navigation bar, those changes will not be seen on the storefront until the cache is cleared.
