    Oh dear…. I have a big problem and I hope somebody here can help. Here’s what happened:

    I have about 10 categories in my blog and all of a sudden today, the category page for cat=2 stopped working. it just loaded a blank page and when I “view source” I saw nothing. It was absolutely blank.

    All my other categories were fine and I could load their respective category pages (i.e., but cat=2 just kept being blank.

    So, I deleted that category. All the posts should have gone into the DEFAULT category, right? For some reason they did not go! I could not find them anywhere! I had about 45 posts, and they all vanished.

    Luckily, I backup all my posts in individual text files offline, so I made the DEFAULT category into the old cat=2. You follow so far?

    Now I have no “Uncategorized” category, and the default category is now the old cat=2, right? So I just finished uploading all 45 posts again into this category and there is still a problem…

    I can now visit the category page–it works fine and loads! However, none of the posts show up on that category page!!! I can see them in the archives and I can see in the Admin panel that the category is supposed to have 45 posts, but the page shows that there are no posts in that category!!

    Does anyone know what happened?
