Support » Fixing WordPress » Cannot add categories

  • FranceFan


    I’ve just had WordPress added to my site ( In the initial setup there is a default category (uncategorized) which I’ve renamed. I’ve then tried to add additional categories but have not been successful. If I go to SITE ADMIN->MANAGE->CATEGORIES, I can see them. However, if I go to “view site”, they are not listed under “categories”. What do I need to make them visible under categories?

    As a separate question, I want to set up WordPress so that it goes me SEO advantages, and I’ve been refered to for this. However, when I cut and pasted the code at the end of my HTACCESS file, I lost the ability to upload my site (my site is created in FrontPage). Is there a better or easier way to do this?

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Did you add any posts to those categories yet? Categories do not show up on the blog in the Categories list unless there are posted associated with them.



    Thanks Oriecat. That was my problem. My categories are now appearing.
