    I just installed a fresh copy of WP 3.2.1

    I have been running WP going back to I can't remember when on another site.

    I just did a visual compare on the table structures and found an anomaly that I cam wondering about. On the wp_posts table, is the post_category column used anymore?

    My fresh install does not have that column. My rolled-forward DB does but each of the rows has a value of zero in it.

    If the fresh install doesn't have the column then I doubt it is used anymore. Don't quote me on that though.

    Thanks @mike183. I'll wait to see if others respond with the same message. Appreciate the quick reply too.

    @mike183 got me thinking, so I ended up dropping the post_category column and looked at the site. So far, my posts have retained their categories. So the categories tag must be driven some other way.
