[resolved] product categories not showing (5 posts)

    I just did a new DB and a fresh install of wordpress. Then installed MP-Lite. Except for the product categories not showing on the menus options under themes (this is any std WP theme. 2014, 2013 or any other)every thing looks pretty good.

    It appears something did not get into the DB on marketpress install.

    Ideas how to fix this?

    I have done two fresh installs of WP 3.9.1 and MP Lite. Both installs do not show the product categories on the theme menu options dashboard. The product options are in the db.

    All my other tests were in DB that had WP upgrades from older versions.

    My conclusion is MP Lite has an issue that needs to be fixed soon in a mtce release compatible with 3.9.1

    Hi @flyfisher842,

    Greetings and thanks for posting! I think I may have misunderstood, but to help clarify, MarketPress provides category options at Products > Product Categories.

    It doesn't add any features to theme options.

    If instead you're looking to add product categories to menus, you can click to open the Screen Options drop-down at Appearance > Menus, then tick Product Categories there.

    You'll then be able to add those categories directly as menu items.

    Would that work for you?

    Yes!! Too much hurry. I am not used to having to mess with screen options. Interesting enough, on two other test beds, that option was apparently already on.

    My Bad!!
    Sorry for the trouble.
