What is the way to merge 2 categories?
 

Answer

Imagine that we have 2 categories catA and catB

If you want to merge catA with catB, then you simply need to get the list of nodes with a reference to catA, then remove this reference and set it to catB

Here could be a script to handle it from the groovy console. Before running it, you need to set the categoryFrom and the categoryTo variables with the current category path you want to work with.

Also set the doIt to true to apply the changes.
