Folding Category List displays correct post counts for only a few of my categories and the others show up as 0 regardless of the actual post count. I examined the file focal_wp28.php and found the problem is related to the following SQL that selects a the posts for a given category:
$querystr = " SELECT DISTINCT $wpdb->posts.ID FROM $wpdb->term_taxonomy, $wpdb->posts, $wpdb->term_relationships WHERE $wpdb->posts.ID = $wpdb->term_relationships.object_id AND $wpdb->term_relationships.term_taxonomy_id = $wpdb->term_taxonomy.term_taxonomy_id AND $wpdb->term_taxonomy.term_id = $cat->term_id AND $wpdb->posts.post_status = 'publish' AND $wpdb->posts.post_type = 'post' AND $wpdb->posts.post_date < NOW() ";
If I remove the last bit that checks the time stamp (posts.post_date) then everything works fine. I checked the time stamps on my posts and the ones not being included have time stamps for today.
My best guess is that the time stamp in the database has a different time zone than what's returned by NOW().
Is this an issue with my WordPress database or is there a different way to check the time stamp?
