Categories and Tags not showing up in Dashboard (3 posts)

    I've just done the automatic upgrade to 2.8.6 and none of my categories are showing up besides their associated posts. Luckily I only have 3 categories at the moment. The same applies to my tags.

    Has anyone else experienced the same issue in 2.8.6?

    Or know of a previous solution?

    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 default theme to rule out any theme-related problems?

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

    It's really a 2.8.6 issue. A major one that kept me awake till morning

    I used the query suggested at http://www.jauhari.net/how-to-fix-wordpress-26-missing-categories.jsp

    But even if you run it new categories may still have missing descriptions.

    Also "exclude" post seems also not to be working properly in 2.8.6.

    I truly hate this version...
