Categories list not updating automatically when adding a new category (4 posts)

    I'm using version 3.0.1 and when I add a new category through the 'Categories menu' in the dashboard it doesn't automatically update the categories list. The only way for it to appear is if I go out of the page and then go back in. The same happens when adding a category through the 'Add new post' screen.

    Has anyone else seen this problem? Spent the last hour or so trawling the web but can't find anything. I have other blogs running the same version and it doesn't have the problem and there aren't any noticeable differences in set up!

    Thanks in advance

    Many themes hide empty categories, so try adding a post to your new category first.

    Hi esmi,

    That's not the problem I'm afraid, it's actually within the dashboard when you add a category. It's as if the ajax isn't working therefore doesn't reload the page.

    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-specific problems?

    - increasing the memory available to PHP?
