    Yes, it is broken on my production site as well.

    Yes. Broke my permalinks. Deactivating Top Level Categories made links work okay.

    Same here - it broke my permalinks when I tried clicking on a post, and led me to the 404 error page.

    I use the Top Level Categories plug-in on all of the WordPress websites I design, so this is really frustrating me. I wish WordPress would test their upgrades out for compatibility with the most popular plugins before they go releasing these updates.

    It would be great if this functionality was incorporated into the WP core. To me it seems like everyone would want to have this. My 2 cents...

    I completely agree with you there. For all the talk that WordPress put out in their official announcement about how this is more of a CMS than ever before, this is a big oversight to not include.

    You may need to let WP regenerate your .htaccess.

    Some plugins may cause permalink issues too.

    I had already tried that before I posted my initial comment and his solution didn't work. The problem is specifically related to the plug-in.

    Hello fellow WordPress users and admins!

    Everybody using Top Level Categories plugin and who has updated to WordPress 3.1 knows, that Top Level Categories breaks WordPress 3.1. Since TLC hasn't been updated in 3 years and sites are down, we decided to do something about it.

    Here's a new version of the plugin: FV Top Level Categories

    Please let us know on our plugin page if you notice any issues, so we can fix them.

    Thanks,
    Martin

    I was about to say the same thing - that worked like a charm! Thanks for creating this version!

    @FolioVision: Thanks for that. I've added a note suggesting that users switch to FV Top Level Categories to http://wordpress.org/support/topic/troubleshooting-wordpress-31-master-list
