New categories are not showing up
I’ve created a new subcategory using the Manage > Categories page, but the new subcategories do not show up in the selectable list on the Write Post page.
Strange. I just created one and it showed up fine when I went to Make Post.
It may be a cache issue. While on the Make Post page, do a CTRL-F5 keypress. That’ll do a fresh reload of the page.
What OS, browser, etc. are you using?
I tried a Shift+Reload, it didn’t work. The system stuff is: FreeBSD 6, Galeon 2 based on Mozilla 1.7.12.
I have a lot of subcategories (I use them as tags); there isn’t a max, right?
I also just tested in straight-up Mozilla 1.7.12 and Firefox 1.5 (all on FreeBSD 6) and it didn’t work there (this also removed any idea of a caching issue). If you really think this is related to the browser I can try Safari on OS X, but I don’t think that’s it.
There is a max of 100 shown at once, and a bug related to that. We should be fixing the bug soon.
I see the categories now. Sorry about that. I was looking at the page your name was linking to. Now I see the WP blog.
Is there any other way to add categories to a post?
Yeah you can type them in in the quick-add box.
has the 100 limit on categories’ bug been fixed in 2.0.1 update? if not, is there a way to select a category that exists, but can’t be seen in the post page right hand column box?
I added a category hours ago titled “contact me,” and though it shows up in my dashboard, it doesn’t show up on my site. I am new to this, but every other category I have added instantly popped up, no problem. I have tried editing, deleting and doing it again and still, it’s not there for viewers. So far, the Word Press blog has been easy and I’m really impressed and happy with it. I’ve had lots of compliments on the professional look of the site.
But I need this contact me section. HELP!
Denise, you have to make a post within that category for it to show up.
Drmike, almost all of the other categories don’t have post and they show up. But I tried that with the one I am working on anyway, and it still didn’t show up.
Actually, when you go to Manage Pages in the dashboard, all of my categories are listed there, including the one that doesn’t show up on the home page. But when you click on the others, it takes you to that page or category. When you click on the one that is not showing up it leads you back to the home page.
Can someone please help me fix this?
I’m having the same problem. I have created 2 categories, and 3 sub categories under them, all show in my dashboard under categories, but none of them show from the home page in the links section.
Having category-related problems as well. Changed the names of several categories already containing several posts, but when you click on them (i.e. the category names,using the weblog’s home- or frontpage) no posts show up. This have to do with an upgrade going on, or is it bug-related? Otherwise, this blog is OK! Really enjoying it!
Thnx in advance for a helpful answer.
I’m having the same problem as 50clock. I changed the name on a category, and now the link doesn’t work. I can find them in the archives, but even if I press on the category reference at the bottom of a post that is *in* that category, nothing.
I tried something that worked for me. When a category I created (Memories) didn’t show up I created a ‘test’ one -category ABC.
ABC did not show up but the previous one, Memories, did. Perhaps there’s a bug of some sort which allows only the previous category created to show up.
I am having the same problem and have read many of the related entries on posting, tags, and categories. I just sent my blog from blogger to wordpress (bodyontheline.wordpress.com). All the categories work fine for me in the blogroll with respect to linking to blogs or websites under blogroll. But I am trying to take all my back postings, which were imported as “uncategorized” and put them under the same categories that I’ve created for blogs and things. None of these categories appear in the right-hand side box (only “uncategorized” appears there). When I try to add a category it tells me something strange happened and to refresh my browser, but this never works.
My question: how can I use the same categories I already created in posting new entries on my blog? I have Mac OS X and I use Firefox.
