Accidentally deleted all categories!!
This is a disaster 🙁 … Guess this is one of those noob things …
I installed the plugin “more types”, so as to create a podcast episode type. Seemed to work, and I now have my custom “Podcast” menu right under “Posts” in the admin menu. I notice under that that my existing categories are all replicated in my Podcast type.
Now my assumption was that I now have a new categories database which has been created by some default with my existing blog categories. So I figure “OK, I don’t want all those categories for the podcast. So I’ll just delete them from this Podcast panel, and replace them with the one generic category I want for the podcast.” Made perfect sense to this noob …
Well then I go into my original Posts (i.e. blog) panel – and behold all my categories are gone!!!
I’ve downloaded a backup of my WP installation thanks to my web host. What files would I want to replace to recover the situation?
