Grand Child Categories Missing in Admin (7 posts)

    Hello WP community!

    I have an odd problem with grandchild categories not showing up in the admin list. They are visible when you add a post but not in the admin list where you edit them. I have tried to search for them as well but to no avail. I ran the DB checks and fix in PHP MyAdmin. The problem still persists.

    Please advise!

    There is 3 or 4 posts out there with this problem.

    I've went through all of those links and cannot find a solution to this in 2.8.6!

    Someone must have a reason why this is happening.

    Could it be that half way through creating categories there is a failure and only part of the data is saved which then throws off the rest of the blogs categories forever?!

    This has been a major headache as I thought it was a theme problem!

    Run this query in phpmyadmin in your wp database as suggested by http://www.jauhari.net
    "UPDATE wp_term_taxonomy,wp_terms SET wp_term_taxonomy.description = wp_terms.name WHERE wp_term_taxonomy.term_id = wp_terms.term_id"

    but make sure you are using the wp prefix or change it in the query the prefix to what you assigned.

    The query worked for me but when I add new categories , I have to run the query again. Hence, I will just revert back to 2.8.5.
