Calendar names have disappeared (8 posts)

    I'm running 2 WP self-hosted blogs. On one of them, on my Add New/Edit Post page, the categories have disappeared. There are a series of checkboxes there, but the name are invisible. If I check a checkbox, the post is assigned a category. But the category names themselves don't display, which means assigning categories has become a matter of trial and error.

    What's going on here, and how do I fix it?

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    - re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

    I've tried the last---I'll work on the first.

    BTW, I meant "Category" in the title, not "Calendar"

    Thanks.

    It's theme-specific: Brunelleschi version 1.4.3.

    Now that I know this, how can I fix it?

    Try upgrading to the latest version of the theme: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/brunelleschi

    OK--made some customizations to it. Actually a lot of them. If I don't want to lose them, do I create a child theme?

    A child theme would be the way to go, yes. I suggest that you save a copy of the current theme's folder before you upgrade. Then you'll need to create a child theme and start adding your customisations to the child using the old theme copy as an example.
