Support » Fixing WordPress » Patch: wp-admin/categories.php

  • In the current CVS version of WordPress (as of 10:55pm PDT on 24 May 04) I get the following error

    [error] PHP Warning: Missing argument 1 for wp_dropdown_cats() in /Users/joseph/Sites/wordpress-cvs/wp-admin/admin-functions.php on line 93

    When viewing the wp-admin/categories.php page. It appears that wp_dropdown_cats() has all optional arguments except for the first one. The solution that I tried, that seems to work, is to simply add an argument of false to the wp_dropdown_cats() call that is causing the error. The following patch does the job:

    diff -u -u -r1.30 categories.php
    --- wp-admin/categories.php 24 May 2004 08:22:16 -0000 1.30

    Please note that tabs and things like that are all messed up i this patch because of cut-n-paste action.

  • While you were at that, did you see a way to include the “exclude categories” option in the dropdown_cat? 🙂 🙂
    I must say I’m eagerly waiting for that. While in the normal wp_list_cats all possible options are already there… So why not in the dropdown_cat at the same time???
