I cant create category (9 posts)

    I can't create categories in my posts. All of my posts goes to uncategorized category even if I tried to create category in the categories area. The weird thing is, if I search for a category name, there's no result but if I add a category name which already exist, it says "The category you are trying to create already exists."

    All of my posts are categorized so that it would be easy for me to control what posts I would like to display.

    Does the web hosting has something to do about this? Thanks

    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-related problems.

    - renaming the plugins folder via FTP

    Actually there are no plugins installed yet. And I'm currently using the default theme. I reinstalled the wordpress and used new database but still won't work. It works fine in my local computer.

    I think the database has something to do with it. There are sql error when viewing the tables. I double check it again. I can post but I just can't create categories and tags.

    Can you log into mysql using PhpMyAdmin, backup your database and then repair the tables?

    I'm having a similar problem. When I try to tag a post nothing happens. No error message, but no tag either. Using v. 2.8.1.

    (fyi, tags added before the upgrade to 2.8 function properly)

    There was an issue with the saving of tags in WP 2.8. Not sure if it's been sorted in 2.8.1.
