    Hello all,

    since the upgrade to 2.7.1, "wp_list_cats" do not display the category list in my main page. Instead, I get a message: "There's no categories".

    Anyone know if this is a known problem with the latest version?

    Did you upgrade from a much older version?

    wp_list_cats has been deprecated for some time.


    Replace it with

    wp_list_categories() and you should see your categories again.

    Thanks. That worked.
    I've been using it till version 2.7.

    I am using wp_list_categories() but the categories aren't listed.
    They are in the database, though and show up when creating a post.
    They don't show up on the categories manager.

    Is there any way to debug this?
    It worked fine until a server reboot.

    Any tips are apreciated.

    an additional note:
    adding a new category on the edit post page removes all listed categories from the list ... the new category is displayed until it is selected.
    After saving the post, the category vanishes.

    Same for the category manager.

    The new categories show up in the database.

    I am using wp 2.7.1

    Hi - I don't have an answer to your question but I suggest starting a new thread on this - this one has been marked as resolved and probably won't get noticed.
