    Due to a database error I tested to convert categories (who not existed) to tags. That was a mistake. I want to undo that, is there any way?

    I believe you'd need to restore the database from your backup.

    I came with the similar problem few days ago. Did you did you try regenerating the permalinks b4? Check out "Options->Permalinks" and reset to the oringal. If the problem still there, try to use the standarted theme and test.

    To convert tags back to categories, what changes need to be made in the database? I use phpMyAdmin, and the categories that were converted are still there...?
