I work on a D7 website where some taxonomy terms were created and then deleted.
I’ve build a search form with views based on taxonomy terms (filter criterion: Content: Term name (field_term_name)) and i see some "deleted" terms in filter exposed to visitor.
I’ve check directly in DB and it appears that these datas (which should be completely deleted) are still in
I do not see these terms in the Drupal admin but I can however still see them in the database, and I can open them directly using the tid in the Drupal interface.
My experience with Drupal let me think that is not a good idea to delete them directly in DB. So how can I proceed ?
