  • Resolved producte


    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.
