Support » Fixing WordPress » Categories & Tags No Longer Appear & Cannot Be Created

  • All of my posts & links have been moved to “uncategorized” and all tags have disappeared. My old category names appear under “Most Used” but won’t save. Also any new categories I create, disappear after saving the post. I cannot create new Categories in the Categories sections either (they create just fine but disappear as soon as I re-load the page). Tags can be entered but once the article is updated, they disappear.

    I’ve tried:

    – Repairing my database using WP-DBManager and Cpanel
    – Updating all plugins & deactivating all plugins
    – Updating my theme and changing my theme to twentyeleven to check for a theme specific problem
    – Updating WordPress to 3.8.1

    Not sure what triggered the problem unfortunately.

    Thanks in advance for any advice you have!

  • Hi jazminhupp, wondering if you got anywhere with resolving this issue as I have exactly the same issue on one site. I don’t think it’s the version of WP that’s causing it, as I had an older version suddenly start manifesting the problem (and it makes no difference when I upgrade it).
    Am therefore thinking it’s most likely to be php version related issue (or some other server/hosting side mod).

    I have not had any luck resolving this. I’m guessing something got corrupted in my databases but have no idea how to fix it.

    This was mysteriously fixed after an upgrade to my WebHost Manager from my web hosting service.
