    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem? If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Ten theme to rule out any theme-specific problems?

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin? Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress?

    – increasing the memory available to PHP?

    Hello esmi,

    Thank you very much for providing various alternative solutions the problem I am facing; appreciated.

    However, this time when I once again loaded the site in the browser, the problem vanished! On its own! The only change that was discernible was in the specific post which I had tinkered with earlier. I had to go back into its EDIT and check the appropriate category box, and re-enter the tags. The site’s functionality for both post-categories and page-categories is restored automatically, without any intervention whatsoever.

    This on-and-off random behavior is puzzling. Any clue on what might be causing such behavior?

    At the same time, I will keep a lookout for this behavior, and try out the different alternative solutions you have suggested when it recurs. One conjecture is that there was a problem in the indexing of the mySQL tables on the live server, which somehow got rectified when some automatic internal system-reindexing took place. It would be interesting to know if the others have faced the same or similar problem.

    Thanks once again.
