WHERE have my categories gone???
Somehow my categories have vanished off my blog.
I have not changed anything as far as moving them to a “drop-down”.
Anyone have any answers???
(1) Please post the url for your blog so we can see if we can see your Categories using different browsers.
(2) What is your operating system and which browser and version of it are you using?
(3) When you go here -> Manage -> Categories do you see your categories listed there?
(4) When you go here -> Presentation -> Widgets do you see your Categories widget in the Sidebar box or do you see it in your Available Widgets box. If it’s the latter you must drag and drop it into the Sidebar box and click “save changes” in order for the categories to be displayed in your sidebar.
This just happened to me too!
Categories vanished from blog, then i go to the widget tabs to add it again, the widget is Categories 1
I managed to add it to the sidebar, but it doesn’t accept any of the changes i make in trying to configure it.
Help please :(
YES…my categories ARE listed when I go to manage->Categories
Thanks for your help!
Please do not panic. Everything is backed-up and if the staff are working on the Categories widget this could be the cause. Can you can see your Categories here? -> Manage -> Categories
If you go through the process above of dragging and dropping your Categories widget into the sidebar box and clicking “save changes” what happens? Do your categories display in your sidebar or not?
Yes I can see them in manage. They’re all there, and the posts have the tags also.
And yes they appear in the sidebar, but i cannot configurate the “looks” of it, none of the changes are memorized.
And it seems weird to me that now the widgets name is Categories 1
Thanks for the speedy answer timethief :)
I just hope it all comes back soon :(
I did what you said…and everything is back in order!
I just looked at the blog linked to your username and I see Categorias in your sidebar. If you are referring to a different blog please post the url for it.
Also if this is the case then (1) what is your operating system and (2) which browser and version of it are you using?
Same here. Categories disappeared, so I went into Presentation > Widgets to re-add the widget to the sidebar. Then it wouldn’t accept any changes (i.e., show hierarchy or show post count). I assumed it was a system glitch because the last time this happened it was a system-wide error.
You are very welcome….thank YOU!
I’ve seen you on these forums answering questions several times….and you have GREAT way of explaining yourself and giving support.
GREAT calming effect!
Much thanks…Wordpress is lucky to have you!
Yes that is the blog
Yes, it is there. But after it has disappeared the 1st time, it isn’t allowing me to save the changes when I try to tell it to show the tag numbers and to show hierarchy tree.
It seems to me that developing team really is working, because i see a different thing in the widgets settings that i don’t think was there before: you can add more than 1 Category widget.
Maybe that’s what’s messing with it, not letting me saving my changes on widgets :(
It’s being fixed :)
This has happened to me, too. Thank goodness others are having the same issue. “Categories” went back down to the “Widgets” that I’m not using, all by it’s little self. So, I brought it back up to where it was, and it stayed there, however it will not hold my settings (I use the drop down and the hierarchy). Nor will it hold the title.
Yep – Category widget is currently drunk.
like the smile!
Thanks Mark! :D
and thank you very much for the patience timethief :D
You made my day. It’s rare that a volunteer actually receives such a compliment so I intend to glory in it.
You’re most welcome.
I’m glad you found the correct thread. :)
If any other bloggers are experiencing the same difficulty please do not bother to post to this thread. Mark says “it’s being fixed” so please be patient.
Should be fixed.
@solework – your problems are not fixable fast because we don’t know where your blog is. No link = slow help…. because we need you to come back and tell us.
