    - Categories are in the DB.
    - Dashboard shows correct number of categories.
    - No child categories are shown on website.

    WP v3.0, site: welcome-to-croatia.com

    There are posts in those categories, and when viewing posts, they are listed under categories assigned!

    I see a lot of people having this problem, and no solution. Some have resolved it by reverting to 2.9.2, but I really would like to solve it for v3.0...

    Any tips?!?!

    Found a solution... accidently ;-)

    Used Categories and Tags Converter to convert one of the tags that is also category to category, and that solved all of categories and now everything is fine !?!?

    It's a wordpress.org official plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wpcat2tag-importer/
