[resolved] After wp.com to wp.org migration, post categories are each set to a count of 0 (6 posts)

    Just completed a wp.com to wp.org migration.

    I added a categories widget in my sidebar but it is empty. I opened post categories in my dashboard and all of my categories are listed there, however each one has a posts count of 0, which would explain why the categories widget is empty.

    The same thing happened with my tags; tag cloud is empty, when I open post tags in dashboard, they're all there, but the posts count for each tags is set to 0.

    How do I fix this?

    Thanks for your help.

    Cheers,
    Maggie

    Check one of your posts, is it in the categories and tags it is supposed to be, or do you have the posts, tags, and the categories, but the posts are not using the tags and categories?

    jleuze,

    I've since started from scratch and don't have it up just yet. But, I could look at a post and all of the appropriate tags and categories are listed in the right places - they appear to be associated to the post.

    But, when I open post tags in the dashboard, the tags are indeed listed, but at the far right of each one, is a 0, representing the number of posts with that tag. Same is true of the categories listing.

    So, even though they show up in the post itself, they don't appear to be linked to the post in the database. I noticed this when my tag could widget showed 0 tags.

    Ideas?

    Thanks for your help.

    What plugins are you using, anything that could be affecting your categories or tags?

    jleuze,

    Nope, none. It was a basic first time install. I hadn't even had a chance to add anything really except a theme.

    I wiped everything out and started from scratch. I redid the import and I have tags and categories now. Seems to be OK. No idea what the problem was the first time around. Man, that was frustrating.

    I'm all good now though. Thanks for trying.

    Cheers,
    Maggie

    That's good to hear, you must have just had an incomplete import last time, or some corruption.
