I have a very interesting problem on my localhost wp installation. Some Elements are missing in the adminarea...
I create a custom menu. It should be visible as an item in the admin area, but it's not there. When I call the url ".../wp-admin/nav-menus.php?action=edit&menu=3" it's there and I can edit it.
The same with categories. I can create a new category within a new post and while I'm editing the post. After I published the post, the category is gone. It's even missing under admin > posts > categories.
I'm running a local xampp-installation (apache 2) on a macbook (lion). The mac-webserver is deactivated. PHP Version 5.3.1.
Settings for virtual host are:
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes ExecCGI
Allow from all
It looks like everything's fine once I've uploaded the whole page to a remote server. That's why I think it has something to do with my local xampp installation. I hope you can help or point me in one direction.
