Support » Fixing WordPress » Can’t change the category of posts

  • I’ve had my posts in categories and working fine on a new site, and use WP version 2.7.1. I renamed the uncategorized category to news so this was my default, several weeks ago. Everything has been working fine from then until today. This afternoon I go to make some changes to my site and all my posts have become “uncategorised”.

    I have tried to quick edit posts and select their correct category, but when I click update nothing changes. The same goes for posts I go into and change. When I edit the post, where a category is normally checked on the right hand side, these are all unchecked. I don’t get any error message when I try to change the categories, they just don’t update once I click update.

    I created a new category, but I can’t assign posts to that either, so I don’t know what to try next. I can live without categories in the short term, but would like to fix this if possible.

    The site is here.

  • Ok, just noticed that none of my posts have tags anymore. The tags are still there and I can select them, but like the categories I can’t get any changes to save.

    If anyone can please help me with this problem it’d be most appreciated. Even just a rough idea would be a start.

    I can’t even see my category pane when editing a post. All of that content is all gone for some reason.

    I have it turned on in “screen options”, but it doesn’t appear, in FireFox or Safari 3.

    I have been mucking with some plugins but turned things off didn’t help. I can’t properly edit my posts… quicklyk contemplating a revert back to 2.7.1.
