    Hi, I have a problem regarding my category widget. I'm using Deux Milles Douze theme and when I open any category from the widget, it either shows one post from that category with full text and not summary or it says link not found, how can I solve this issue?

    might be caused by the permalinks - http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks
    sometimes it helps just to hit the save button for the permalink settings, even without making changes.

    if you think it is a theme issue, please post in http://wordpress.org/support/theme/deux-milles-douze

    posting a live link to illustrate the problem might be useful...

    Didn't get my answer, I have very less knowledge about all this, can you please check my blog and give me an answer clearly as to what should I do.Here's my link http://simplyprettyandhealthy.com/

  4. Hi Arzoo,

    I just looked at your site and I think that there's an issue because your category looks like it's in a subcategory.
    The link to your category is like so:

    http://simplyprettyandhealthy.com/Sunscreen,Nature'sEssence/body-lotion/

    You can see the Sunscreen,Nature'sEssence in there. That shouldn't be there.
    I think that you need to revisit your category. It's best to avoid commas and apostrophes. Unless your site is only about sunscreen, I don't see the point of having that as a category.

    Once that's fixed the links should work.

    Ok thanks, but tell me where do I edit my category, I mean in what option. And I don't use commas and apostrophes, when I write my post, I just simply add a new category and click on it if my post is related to that.

    what are the entries under:
    dashboard - settings - permalinks - category base

    and:
    dashboard - settings - permalinks - tag base

    My blog is related to beauty and health and most of the category is by product's name.

    you could try to write something with just lowercase characters, separated with hyphens;

    example:
    sunscreen-natures-essence

    under
    dashboard - settings - permalinks - category base

    and:
    dashboard - settings - permalinks - tag base

    you can include whatever you like, as long as it is lowercase with hyphens - no commas, no apostrophes

    I tried doing, beauty-health-products and then activated the category widget but now it's not even opening, I select a category and it just stays there.

    you need to use different texts for the category base and the tag base;

    I could not find the categories widget in your site.

    both should be different from each other, right? I deleted it as it was not properly activated.

    And one more thing, can you please check whether my site is verified in google analytics or not, I did it today and it's showing a G sign on the address bar but I'm not sure about it.
