    same problem here. Updated WP to 2.8, updated the plugin to 2.8, not working.

    I am calling the function from the sidebar, not using a widget.

    Try an uninstall and reinstall, the first version that got put up was missing an updated file so I don't know how long it cached that.

    Oh and make sure you visit the My Category Order page to do the taxonomy.php patching.

    After updating to 2.8, this plugin has been a nightmare for me.

    I have deleted and reinstalled the plugin several times now, both from the plugins page and manually via the ftp. However - I never get the updated message when visiting the admin page (taxonomy.php patching?) ... Why?

    The code actually messes up the whole site, so I have to remove the code when not working on it. The site loads for a couple of seconds and then disappears. I'm in desperate need of some help. Thanks, guys.

    Before you change any code in your theme make sure it is working correctly. You'll only get the patching message once (if it shows up every time, something is wrong with permissions).

    If you go to the My Category Order page, order your pages click the button, leave the page and come back, are they still in the order you set? If not then the database columns that need to get added aren't being created (but it should display an error message on page load if that is the case).

    Also post the code you are editing in your theme and what you are changing it to.

    I've got the same problem after upgrading to 2.8.1: categories disappeared and saying that there are no categories.

    Homika,

    Did you follow my procedure I posted above?

    hmm I went to wp_options and deleted the row with the plugin configs. Now categories are being shown on the widget, but subcategories are mixted with categories and out of order.

    I tried to sabe cats order but I had no luck :(

    lol I found it!

    There is no need to teak, uninstall, nothing!
    I just had a category on the exclude field of widget config. I just had to remove it and everything worked again!!

    Probably it is something that changed on the database and the query is now returning empty result!

    If you are talking about un-installing it and installing meaning de-activating and activating it again, and visiting My Category Order page to do the taxonomy.php, then yes, I did.

    Do the categories show up and get saved in the order you specify?

    shidouhikari,

    Weird thing is I haven't had any problems and others seem to be okay. Little perplexed about the problems people are having.

    It's just a bit weird that the "my category order" page is located under "posts", I was looking for it under "tools". I can see how both places make sense though.

    Just visiting that page to update the taxonomy.php did the trick I think, although I also changed around the 'includes" category.

    froman118,
    on admin page categories are showing in the order I specify and I believe are getting saved, however noticed after I got did the taxonomy.php patching "no categories" message got replaced with the first category in the list, but it still shows only one (I've didn't notice that before as I deactivated the plugin after I've failed to get it back working).

    I've also tried to delete the the plugin from FTP and install it again...no luck...

    Maybe I am making steps in wrong order or something?

    Homika,

    Are you using widgets? Do you have a category ID in the include option?

    I am using widget.
    Got it working now, for some reason "Include:" was specified to only one category ID. I must have messed it up during those turning on/off.

    Thanks.

    After some tweaks it worked for me. Does this plugin change the lineup in the sidebar widget only? I have categories in the header that line up alphabetically still. If this plugin can not change it, is there one that can?

    The plugin only supports one widget right now (top of my todo list), but if your header categories aren't in a widget then you can order those with a theme modification. Something like this:

    wp_list_categories('orderby=order&title_li=');

    I just haven't had time to rewrite all of the widget code and still maintain support for older versions of WP.

    Just upgraded to 2.8.3 and orderby=order dispays "No Categories" on the front end....so that doesn't seem to work anymore.

    Using the widget and including all the categories I needed did produce the correct order though.

    Just a note that orderby=order and 2.8.3 are working for me -

    o Deactivate plugin
    o Auto upgrade to 2.8.3 (from 2.8.2)
    o Delete all my_category_order files
    o Install a freshly downloaded version of the plugin
    o Activate
    o Go to Posts > My Category Order and get message about updated taxonomy

    All is well, even without widgets.
