Hey Dave,

In the administration, go to Catalog > Attributes > Manage Attributes.

Then, go to the second page where you will find “Weight” as an attribute, click on it. You will need to turn off the setting for “Use In Layered Navigation” which is may somehow be set to Yes. However, I don’t believe Weight can be set to yes (for layered navigation) since it isn’t a dropdown or multiple select field. Did you by chance create an additional attribute for weight? If not, I would check to see if you have any fields set to Yes, such as the first three under the Frontend Properties tab.

If that doesn’t work, someone else will probably chime in. I didn’t see any other posts regarding this question.

I was just getting ready to give an update. I tried to do just that, but like you said, i was not even able to set it for layered navigation (it was not changeable, and it was set to no. ) I changed it to search-able, then back to non-search-able and then It said i needed to rebuild the search index… Not sure why, but after i did that the weight was gone and only category was displayed. Just like i wanted....

Still don’t know what happened, but looks good now. Weird.
