category drop down links to page (4 posts)

    I'm having an issue with the category selection:

    When a user selects a category from the drop down, the page immediately redirects to the selected category page before the user has a chance to type a description or submit post.

    Any way to fix this? What could be the issue here?

    Obviously this doesn't happen normally to Frontend so something else is causing this.

    1. Try using one of the default themes of WordPress to see if the problem persists. Themes are often the cause of problems.

    2. Disable other plugins to see if they are the cause of the problem.

    Tell us the results of above and what versions of Frontend and WordPress you are using and your theme.

    I am seeing the same problem as heyfonz. I am using WordPress 3.6.1 and Frontend 1.2.3. My Theme is Attitude 1.2.4.

    Here is my site.

    I will try disabling plugins and a default theme and see what happens.

    I was able to workaround this problem. I found that if you enter everything first, Post Title, Post Content and any tags or attachments, then at the very end choose the category and hit submit, it works.

    So I just added these instructions at the top of my New Post page for users.
