  • Hi

    I have many categories on my blog (more than 300, and i’m expecting increase much more), and i’m experiencing troubles when I edit an category.

    Suppose I have the following category tree:

    Chemistry
    — Organic Chemistry
    — Inorganic Chemistry
    Physics
    — Optics
    — Mechanics

    When I edit category “chemistry”, to add or change the description, for example, the subcategories organic and inorganic chemistry goes to Physics.

    This isn’t a rule, sometimes happens, sometimes everything runs fine.

    It’s becoming a big problem for me =( . anyone knows a solution for this?
    thank you!

    Have you tried repairing your database?

    Do you mean REPAIR TABLE sql command?
    I dont use this, but this really could be the source of my problems?

    Yes I do. It’s a possible source.

    Alternatively, you could try deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).
