[resolved] Categories,Tags and Comments missing from Screen options (2 posts)

    When I try to create a new post or try to edit a previous post, Categories,Tags and Comments box is not appearing on the right hand side. So i thought may be they r not selected in screen options. But when i clicked on screen options,Categories,Tags and Comments are not present in the list. Only featured image and screen layout is present in the screen options. However when i go to all posts page, and click on quick edit button of a particular post; Categories,Tags and Comments are present.

    The whole issue started when i installed slideck 2 lite plugin. It added its own custom options and replaced the category,tags and comments on the edit posts page. So i deactivated and deleted the plugin but categories , tags and comments still did not appear on edit post page. I installed a fresh copy of wp-includes and wp-admin but the problem was still not resolved. Any solutions for this problem?

    The problem is now resolved. The issue was that i was using a plugin called White Label CMS Settings to hide certain settings on post page from non-admins. I had included tags, categories and comments in that list.So i could see them but not others. When i installed slidedeck, it removed tags, categories and comments even for admin and replaced it with it's own custom options. I deactivated slidedeck but categories,tags and comments did not appear. So i went to White Label CMS Settings and added back categories,tags and comments for all users and the issue was resolved. Hurray!
