Support » Fixing WordPress » Nothing found for Category

  • for site http://www.freeonlinebingos.com/ there are categories listed in the right hand sidebar. In the admin control panel, posts are listed as being under general and adverts, yet when clicking on the category link for x from the web page the title tag ‘Nothing found for Category x’ is displayed.

    What’s up? Some noob error? WordPress is recognising the posts under the categories, but the links are failing to display posts for that category correctly. The categories are current, and the posts have been published.

  • Try one of the default permalink settings and see if that resolves the problem..

    That’s the only thing i can think is the problem, as querying your page in this manner works just fine..

    I have implemented your suggestion which works – thanks! – but I don’t understand why the original (and apparently default) permalink structure for category does not work. Is this likely a bug with wordpress or a plugin?

    Sorry i don’t mean default non-pretty permalinks, but one of the provided permalink structures, as your archive links worked fine under the permalink settings you were using before.. just not the category links..

    Try one of the other structures and see if the results are any different.. 🙂

    I have been getting ‘preg’ errors (in classes.php around lines 209 to 211 from memory)
    [20-Feb-2010 16:07:59] PHP Warning: preg_match() [<a href='function.preg-match'>function.preg-match</a>]: Compilation failed: nothing to repeat at offset 1 in /home/freeonli/public_html/wp-includes/classes.php on line 211
    – which I can chase away by resetting the permalink status, but they keep returning soon after.

    Still seem to be getting them when using a preset pretty permalink structure. I still cannot get the default category permalink to work, even with the default pretty permalink structure active. The second I try the ‘preg’ errors above return.

    what’s going on?

    This seems to be related.

    I’m not sure what the verdict was on the cause exactly, it’s not clear on the trac ticket.

    Marked as a 2.9.1 bug though, so maybe whatever the problem is, is fixed for 2.9.2 …

    apparently not fixed in 2.92 either. Using

    http://www.freeonlinebingos.com/2010/02/28/sample-post/

    style pemalink, and

    /?category_name=%category%

    for category pages (else the preg error occurs as before)

    the preg bug still shows when a page is edited. To resolve, the permalinks must be changed, changed back and saved – kickstarted I suppose!
