[resolved] Adding new categories in WP 3.0 (7 posts)

    When adding a new category via post -> categories it reads "add a new tag" and there is a listing of "popular tags". Below I can choose the parent category. When I enter a name in the field for "tags" it will be added as a category though. Is it only me?

  3. cinematic - You're saying you want to add a new category, but your description implies you're entering it in the wrong field (i.e. TAGS).

    Are you clicking on + Add New Category and getting the DROP DOWN options?

    If you're entering the name in the field for TAGS (the lower half of my screenshot) then you've added a tag, not a category.

    Hi, thanks for the replies.

    I am using add category in the admin interface (see screenshot)

    It reads "tag" but meant is a category (and a category will be added if I enter a word).

    I'm not seeing that problem either.

    I'd see what happens if you upgrade to the latest nightly. But wonder if a plugin and/or theme is causing that.

    @ techjockey - are you using version 3.0-alpha of WordPress?
