I used the Automatic WordPress Plugin to Upgrade my blog from Version 2.0.2 to 2.6. I upgraded a blog that had very little in it, just in case the upgrade did not go well.
I was quite impressed with how smoothly it went and how easy it was.
While trying to familiarize myself in Version 2.6, I discovered that my Category Names were now empty within the admin panel.
When I looked at the blog itself - front page - under Categories, there was the number of entries - only 3 - but, there were *no catgory names.
So it looked like this:
In ADMIN - in the Category Panel there were 3 blank categories under Categories. In other words there were no names, titles, or anything else. They were just blank.
The one that had the 3 entries had no option to delete that category even after I created new ones and moved everything. All the other empty category rows had a box to select and delete.
Can anyone please advise what to do here.
If this is the case and I can really lose my category names I would not even chance the upgrade until whatever is wrong gets fixed - if there is something wrong.
Thanks in advance.
This is an old blog that I have not touched for 2 years. It has an old version of the theme as well, but I do not think that that would have anything to do with it.
