Catagory issues with 2.6 upgrade (5 posts)

    There seems to be an issue with categories after a 2.6 upgrade. I've noticed a lot of threads in the forum about category names, descriptions and ID numbers that are missing after people have upgraded, and encountered a similar problem myself.

    I'm in the process of switching to a magazine style theme. The information is ordered with query_posts functions which refer to specific category ID numbers. There used to be a field in Manage > Categories for the ID number, but I don't see that in the upgrade.

    I've used MySql to access the wp_term_taxonomy, and added the Cat ID numbers to the description. I can see them under manage categories now, so basically I can just get on with tweaking my new theme, but this sure seems an inelegant workaround, and I wonder what if I'm missing something here. Are the Cat ID numbers really not there anymore, or is this a bug?

    I'm having the exact same issue. Any advice would be much appreciated!

    wp-admin >> manage >> categories >>

    Categories amd sub categories are not being listed on this page. I have 15 total and I only see 8.

    You are not the only one.

    I just upgraded to 2.6 and my categories have effectively disappeared. I'm waiting for a solution to this problem. At least it's a bit reassuring to see that it's not just me:)
