Support » Fixing WordPress » Categories not working

  • Resolved Daryl OLeary



    I’m currently making a blog for a client but for some reason I can’t seem to get categories to work(I’ve also tried all the permalink structures provided, although I would prefer to keep %post-name as the preferred permalink.

    The blog doesn’t have a domain yet, but can be viewed here. And as you can see on the test posts the categories load a 500 error page. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas what I could be doing wrong, especially since tags work perfectly? Any help would be appreciated.

  • hmmm I see no categories…. on your test post… I only see tags. However with that being said I have been accused of being blind. My suggestion is to activate error logging on your server. 500 Error is generic and the server will log the actual issue. If you are unsure how to do it contact your host, they can show you how. Let me know

    Ah, thanks for reminding me of the error logs, at some point I messed up the category.php file and there was a stray angle bracket from somewhere.

    In any case, I’m using the archive.php file for tags, so I just removed the category.php file and reverted to archive instead.

    Thanks for the help though.
