Categories changed after updating to 2.92 (3 posts)

    I did an update today and now my categories are messed up.

    I'm still very new to wp and just installed the theme a few days ago, so I haven't made too many changes yet. I know I didn't change the categories.

    What used to show as child categories in the edit posts are now showing as parent categories.

    When I go into the dashboard they are set up as child categories though.

    Is there a fix to this. Is this a known issue when updating? Thanks for any help.

    Is this a known issue when updating?

    Not specifically - no. 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?

    thanks esmi, I think I have it figured out. I think it's more a matter of me not understanding how the categories in wp work yet.

    I don't think there was a problem other than that :P
