Support » Fixing WordPress » Categories and Tags not showing up in Dashboard

  • Resolved Adeline


    I’ve just done the automatic upgrade to 2.8.6 and none of my categories are showing up besides their associated posts. Luckily I only have 3 categories at the moment. The same applies to my tags.

    Has anyone else experienced the same issue in 2.8.6?

    Or know of a previous solution?

  • 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 default theme to rule out any theme-related problems?

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

    It’s really a 2.8.6 issue. A major one that kept me awake till morning

    I used the query suggested at

    But even if you run it new categories may still have missing descriptions.

    Also “exclude” post seems also not to be working properly in 2.8.6.

    I truly hate this version…
