[resolved] Categories and tags gone (3 posts)

    I tried out Polylang and after disabling it, all my categories are gone from the WP Admin Categories and Tags windows. They are still in the WP_terms table in database as well as attached to posts - posts already tagged / categorized still have the tags / categories in frontend and the archive pages for them work as they are intended to.

    I can't add any new categories - they disappear as well.
    Reinstalling polylang did not fix the problem

    What could be the reason why the categories and tags don't show up in WP Admin and how could I fix it?

    I have no idea how to solve your issue. If your terms are in database and are correctly displayed on frontend, then it means that either WordPress is corrupted or a plugin/theme is badly interacting with your admin. Of course if Polylang is de-activated, then Polylang does nothing...

    I would try de-activating all plugins and switch to a default theme. Then if the problem persists I would try re-installing WordPress files via FTP.

    This is the second time I am baffled by a simple plugin conflict. I should know better. Thanks a lot for your help. I fixed it.
