Unable to update category slug??? and weirder things (9 posts)

    I have a simple category structure:

    - Country List
    --- Ireland
    --- Bosnia
    --- United Kingdom

    I tried changing "Ireland" to Brazil. In the admin panel, the change is reflected by having "Brazil/brazil"... but when I go to the website and refresh, the category name has changed, but when I click on it, the slug remains "http://www.website.com/category/country-list/ireland/"

    So I thought of checking out the database, and here is where it gets weirder... in the wp_sitecategories i find that the category Ireland with the slug ireland still exist... and Brazil is no where to be found????

    OK, i am losing my mind... whats going on? how do I fix the problem?
    Thanks in advance!

    wp_sitecategories

    thats not a wordpress table. by that, I mean thats not a table that wordpress created. if you have that name right that table has been created by a plugin of some kind.

    I don't have any plugins installed except for wp-pagenavi. are you sure its not a WP table? then where do I find the site categories, in what table? Thanks.

    maybe its my fault because i didn't indicate that i'm using WPMU, but that would of been self explanatory after reading my first post since wp_sitecategories is WPMU specific :)

    but thanks for your insight and help anyways.
