Categories no longer Working (3 posts)

    Hi,

    For some reason, my category tags are no longer working; I will click on one of the categories in the sidebar, but instead of bringing back all those tagged in the respective category I get a mish-mash of results.

    Does anyone know why this would happen? And why it has suddenly stopped working?

    The site is http://www.dominionofale.com

    Many thanks in advance,

    Scott

    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.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    Hi Esmi,

    Thanks for the advice.

    I've deactivated all plugins to no avail. Also reset the plugins via PHP - same result. The theme is TwentyTwelve child - I reverted to the parent, still no luck.

    I guess I'm going to have to re-install. I've never done this before so wish me luck!

    Thanks for you assistance,

    Regards,

    Scott
