  • A new installation of 3.1.4 shows only “Edit Category” in the Admin Bar when logged in.

    This remains the case even if a page or a post is displayed.

    Is this a bug?

  • Try 3.2, but no, that shouldn’t be happening at all.

    This has only happened with this installation… I have 3 others on other domains & servers, where the feature works correctly.

    What files govern this? Have tried reinstalling via FTP, but no success!

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Ten theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    It’s complicated 🙂 Handled by a LOT of files, and also user permissions.

    Pss esmi – I think we need to update that to say “switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.”

    *blush* already done. In my defence, that was posted late yesterday (my time) after I’d just handled some 3.1.x issues.

    [EDIT] Hang on a minute… the OP is using 3.1.4…

    Oooh! My blush now!

    If this has not already been fixed the issue could be that your theme is running a custom query using
    and after the loop you need to rest the query using

    Sorry its wp_reset_query()
