Support » Fixing WordPress » List of categories GONE and tags not visible

  • I am experiencing an odd situation with my posts. As of yesterday, I was able to select categories and insert tags for posts. Today the list of categories are not visible, but I can see that the count of categories is correct. Then when I insert tags are nor shown in the post but do appear in the tags list. Is there any solution for this issue. Do appreciate any help.

    Thank you and Happy New Year!

    have you tried:

    -deactivating ALL plugins (yes, all) temporarily to narrow down the problem. If the problem goes away, re-activate them individually (one-by-one) to find the problematic plugin(s). If you can’t get into your admin dashboard, try resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems (because the hooks remain unless plugins completely removed or some plugins stick around in cached files. So by renaming the folder, you break them and force them inactive). If applicible, also remember to deactivate any plugins in the mu-plugins folder. The easiest way is to rename that folder to mu-plugins-old

    – To rule out any theme-specific issue, try switching to the unedited default twenty twelve theme for a moment using the WP dashboard. If you don’t have access to your admin area, you can switch to the default theme by renaming your current theme’s folder in wp-content/themes via FTP or SFTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    I am having this same issue. I have individually deactivated each of my plugins and that did not change anything. I also renamed my entire plugin folder as to not be seen, and switch to the twenty eleven theme, nothing has changed.

    All of my categories are gone and I cannot create anything new.

    To the left of the post entry’s there should be a list of categories which are longer visible. When I attempt to create a new category to replace the missing, I am told it already exists.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    I’ve also attempted to go back to the default permalink setting and that did not help.
