Support » Fixing WordPress » Categories. Can Not Create

  • I have tried ALL the advice that has been posted all throughout the forums for this problem…so that is why I am posting. . . .

    I have went within the Admin area and tried to fix it as it said it needed to be done; still no luck.
    I turned off the JavaScript; does not work.
    I tried using different browsers….does not work.
    I have tried cleaning up my cache/cookies/temps does not work….restarting the computer ; blah.
    I have even went as far as making my own files…overwriting….and whatnot….nothing works.
    Actually I think it laughs 😉

    My server won’t even accept the .httaccess file…and I do not have one in the admin directory…
    (will not accept name )


    The only thing that DOES work is downgrading back down to the earlier version 2.0.1. and making my list of categories that way, and then upgrading again… it keeps my Categories…which does not really solve the problem for the long haul…but it does for the time being…

    This is the error I’m receiving….(Most times, not all-other times; no notice- at all, will be shown)

    WordPress database error: [Unknown column ‘links_private’ in ‘field list’]
    INSERT INTO wp_categories (cat_ID, cat_name, category_nicename, category_description, category_parent, links_private, posts_private) VALUES (‘0’, ‘NEW TEST’, ‘new-test’, ”, ‘2’, ‘0’, ‘0’)


    Once I click, enter, the information is cleared and a notice (sometimes) that the category is not made.

    Needless to say, this is a sql/script error…but NOTHING I do, fixes it.

    So if anyone has any pointers..whatnot, I’m willing to try it…

    This wpress is located in a subdirectory; but I also have one in the main…so I know that’s not causing it because they both do it….Once I upgraded to 2.2- that is (doesn’t if I stay at lower)
