[resolved] categories missing in post writing screen (6 posts)

    I no longer have the option to select a post category in the "new post" screen. Also, in the "post" menu I have no "category" menu item.

    Existing posts still retain their assigned categories, and template tags can still display them...just can edit existing post's categories or add a category to new posts.

    I don't want to convert my cats to tags, they are not the same thing.

    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-specific problems?

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

    - increasing the available memory?

    plugin problem. Page Category Plus V1.1 was the offender. Dont see it on "extend" anymore...or I would mark it broken for WP3. I don't think I need this plugin anymore anyway (site reorganization)

    Should have caught this myself...thanks.
