Category Order plug-in anomaly! (5 posts)

    theme : default

    I installed and activated the Category Order plug-in (v.1.9.6) by David Coppit and all that happened is that my Category list completely disappeared from the blog pages. Well, that's not entirely accurate - the title 'Categories' was there but no category links were listed.

    Why does everything I post get ignored? Have I unwittingly committed some faux-pas of some kind?

    I posted this 5 days ago and no replies. My other post about the next_post, previous_post (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/84589?replies=6) has had no replies in nearly 3 weeks. It's not as if I'm spamming the forum with pointless questions; asking questions is the purpose of a support forum after all.

    first of all, it's just other users providing support here. you know, volunteers. this isn't paid support. can't really *expect* an answer, you can really only hope for one.

    that said, I suspect no one else has seen this issue, which might be why no one has responded. I recommend you try a previous version.

    and now I'll pass on my own observation. using 1.9.6, I'm finding that xhtml won't validate. A whole bunch of div tags are being added within the ul li structure, messing it up as far as xhtml validation goes. I reverted to 1.9.4, and it works correctly.

    I'm not sure how to fill out a bug report for this, so if someonec can advise me, I would appreciate it.

    Thanks for your reply. I take your point about 'hoping for' rather than 'expecting' a reply to my question...
    I currently have the 1.9.6 version of the plugin. I searched on the author's code page, but could not find a link to the older version (1.9.4) that you refer to. Do you know where I can get hold of this earlier version of the plug-in?

    hmm, I destroyed mine, as I fixed what was wrong with xhtml in 1.9.6. you could post your email in an obscured form (so spambots can't read it), and I can email it to you if I can find it somewhere on my server. Or perhaps you could email the author and ask for an older version to test.

    have you tried a different theme?

    also, if you post an example url, we can look at the html for clues as to what is going on.
