OK here is my problem. I download Keith McDuffee's catagory visibility plugin, and i think it really screwed up my wordpress. So I then downloaded Rich Hamilton's version of the catagory visability and when i went to "manage" in my admin area it doesn't show the "catagory visibility tab". My custom smiley's plugin WAS working prior to downloading keith's catagory visibilty plugin; and now it just stopped working; and it will not show a "custom smiley's tab" in the manage area. I"m not sure what to do. I checked my cache folder in wp-content; and I don't have one, so I manually created a cache folder in wp-content, and the plugins still don't work; and I don't think that wordpress is using the cache folder in wp-content.
PS. I also have the plugins activated but it just won't show anything in the "manage" area. The tabs for these plugins does not show.
