Support » Fixing WordPress » Category Won’t Update

  • Hi! The issue is that when I go to change the Category of a Post and I click Update, the category would revert back to “Uncategorized”.

    Here is a gif with the issue, because is weird

  • Hey, thank you for including a gif, that’s very helpful.

    With issues like this, the first thing I would think of is a plugin conflict. The easiest way to determine if that’s the case would be to temporarily switch off all your plugins and then try changing the categories again.

    If that makes your changes stick, you know one of your plugins caused the issue.

    The next step then is to turn on your plugins one by one, each time testing to try updating your category. When you switch on a particular plugin and the category doesn’t update again, that’s probably the reason. You can then contact the plugin author, asking them for a fix, or try an alternative plugin.

    I hope this helps you.

    Good luck!
