[resolved] One category but showing empty (4 posts)

    I only have one category as I want all listings to show as one. In admin all listings are assigned to this category and in category admin it finds these. In the sccreenshot below it is saying that there are 4 items (I have many but only 4 set to published).


    However clicking on the '4' to show these listings it states that there are none


    The url for the page is correct '/wp-admin/edit.php?wpbdm-category=default&post_type=wpbdp_listing', any ideas why it is showing empty in admin and also on the live site browsing the 'default' category? I have tried renaming the category several times with no luck.

    Hi candell,

    It seems WP admin has problems with taxonomies that have dashes in their name. This is not true in the latest versions but I'm guessing you are at 3.4.x. The problem is not just in the filtering of listings but also happens when trying more simple things like changing the number of items on the screen on Directory -> Directory Categories.

    Here's the WP bug tracking entry on it: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/16064

    Your options include:
    - Ignore this (it only happens admin-side)
    - Upgrade to WP 3.5.x (which has this fixed)

    I'm on WP 3.5.1

    I have gotten around this on the website by ticking the 'Show listings under categories on main page?' option and hiding the category list.

    Hmmm. Interesting. The other woman reporting it saw it fixed when we gave her the latest beta version, so I suspect it's something we've fixed in the plugin for the release coming next week. You should be able to revert then.
