What Happened with Categories, WordPress?

Two days ago I noticed that my categories are no longer showing, so I went into admin and changed it back, so that they are showing. The next day it was back to this “a” and a box you have to drop down to find the categories.

It’s not that I mind the box – if I had chosen the box. I chose to have my categories showing. You gave me that option. What? So now you are taking it away and you didn’t even give me any warning? You appear to give me the option on my Admin page, but I really don’t have the option? What is going on?

I know it’s not just me – I see it on a couple other WordPress blogs I visit.

  3. thats why i recommend people to make their own blogs in their own websites… you’d become your own administrator… partly =P

  4. ShoSho – I don’t moderate – or well, I do when WP tells me to, but I haven’t had any serious problems with jerk-like commenters for a while. Now, I fixed it again and it seems to be saying the way I want it . . . for now!

    Aafke – I fixed it again and so far – so good. Try again!

    Q8GEEK – I wish you were my brother. I wish I had a geek brother to run a website for me. Sigh – well WP will just have to do, and I really haven’t had a lot of trouble. We’re just not all wired the same way. Lucky YOU!

  5. Q8GEEK, I am not a geek! I am an idiot. 😦 On the whole I am very pleased with WordPress and my blog. It’s fairly idiot-proof/compatible.
    But my website is under my own steam, sort of…
