[resolved] 8 articles presented as 16 articles?! (11 posts)

    I have been busy with 'deleting' all kinds of silly categories I made to end up with just two.

    In theorie the 'articles' (as I have called them) I placed under those deleted categories should be put under the -basic always there- categorie, as WordPress says.

    After doing this I changed the names of the two categories and thought to end up with one categorie under which all articles would fall (8 to be precise) and one categorie with a cartoon (1 in this case!).

    But...Now in my sidebar it says there are (16) articles.

    See what I mean (dutch language website): http://www.ps-kritiek.nl/weblog/

    What I mean is the following in the sidebar:

    Artikelen (16)
    Cartoons (1)

    This number (16) how do I change this?

    The ID's must have got something to do with this, but I'm lost...

    Check the 'catergory_count' field in the categories table for the category in question. Seems like things didn't update properly. Set it to the right number and create a new post to see if things are in order.

    Mmhh...Where do I find this 'categories table'?

    Is this a PHP file I need to find or is this to be reached from 'within' WordPress when I'm logged in?

    You'll need to access it with a database tool like phpMyAdmin or similar. email me separately at chris[AT]silpstream[DOT]com. I'll try to help you out if you want to create a temp account for me on your system.
