    I went to http://wordpress.org/search/categories+not+showing?forums=1 and every question was resolved with adding a post to a category....so I've done that....every category has at least one post assigned to it....some even have 3 posts...yet still there are no categories showing up at ALL!

    Now what?

    Rename the plugins folder and rename your theme. This will force wp to open with no plugins and the twentyten theme. Add back one by one until it breaks.

    I appreciate your answer..however won't I then have to redo all the plugins...meaning...rebuild everything I just built...that will take a "hell" of a long time...there are nine plugins..with a bunch of info that I would all have to redo...

    There has got to be a simpler answer...

    categories seem to be messed up. Mine ain't showing up in admin menu on a clean install
    What about another theme ?

    Archaniel, please add your own post. It is not a good practice to jump into someone else's post.

    lowrite, this the classic way to debug both plugins and themes. By renaming the plugin folder, you are not deactivating them. AFAIK they should retain the settings you have entered. Have you validated your blog or checked it here, http://ismyblogworking.com/?

    Kmessinger.....I check to see if my blog is working on the above link...and yes it is...

    My host put in all the plug in automatically so I am unsure how to go about renaming the plugin folder. I do not know what AFAIK means..but at least the settings will be retained...

    I will search around and try to figure out how to go about renaming the plugin folder and theme...

    Afaik=as far as I know

    Going to your cpanel at your hosted site you should be able to view all the files with whatever they provide for you as a file manager or if you ftp into your site with something like filezilla, you can do the same thing.

    Please post a URL.
