  • I need help please. I have site with main categories and sub categories. When you choice main category it opens page with list of subcategories. When you open sub category page it opens page with list of post that belongs to that subcategory.

    I used the same category template for this and it works great, but for some subcategories template dont show list of posts. How is that? When I delete categories and post and start over it works well, but after 5 test examples it happened again with different slugs, category names and posts.

    Here is code of my template, but I was using different one before and it also happened. I think it can be something about database. Can I fix that somehow? And as I’m working with client from other country,I noticed that it always happened when he adds categories and posts.

    if (!category_has_children()) {
            while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
                $categories = get_the_category();
                $last_category = $categories[0];
                foreach($categories as $i => $category)
                    if($category->parent == $last_category->cat_ID)
                      $last_category = $category;
    } else {
        if ( is_category() ) {
            $current_cat = get_query_var('cat');
            $categories=  get_categories('child_of='.get_query_var('cat'));
              foreach($categories as $category) {
              echo $category->name;

    And this is function in functions.php that checks subcategories

    function category_has_children() {
    global $wpdb;
    $term = get_queried_object();
    $category_children_check = $wpdb->get_results(" SELECT * FROM wp_term_taxonomy WHERE parent = '$term->term_id' ");
        if ($category_children_check) {
            return true;
        } else {
            return false;
    add_filter( 'init', 'category_has_children' );
