Some background — i’m using wordpress 3.0.4 because my yahoo small
business account only provides mysql 4.1.14 (and php 5.3.6). there’s
nothing I can do about that, short of changing hosts… they *might*
but anyway, my problem *seems* to be a bug in the theme itself as I’m
playing with various options, and learning how to use wordpress at the
same time. i’m a real newb at this… i can create posts just fine,
and I have a Category called “Sermons” that I’m tagging my posts with.
The problem is that these posts are not showing up on the Category
even though some posts are clearly categorized as “Sermons”:
or my “ThemeLoom – Show Pages” widget (titled “TBC Posts”):
so… this seems like a bug to me… and even if I can’t get all the
wordpress 3.2 features right now, it seems like I should be able to
get my blog mostly set up… suggestions?August 11, 2011 at 8:22 am #1180
This is a pretty basic feature of WP, and the theme isn’t doing anything special for showing categories. There are plenty of sites running it now, so it is unlikely to be the theme itself.
e.g. on the preview site:
You really should be using WordPress 3.2 for lots of reasons and especially security. This is now quite an old version of WP you have.
You could try updating permalinks in your WP settings.August 13, 2011 at 9:12 pm #1185

It’s showing Categories just fine; the problem is that it’s not showing posts in the Categories.

Sure, but on the other hand, I was able to get other themes to work, including other LivingOS themes.

I fiddled a bit… disabled all the plugins (including a Customizable Permalinks plugin from yahoo that seemed suspicious)… nothing seems to work. I’ll post something on the WP forums to see if I can get help there.August 14, 2011 at 8:01 am #1187
Amos, I really think you should update WordPress. The only thing different about Xi is we are using the get_template_part function introduced in version 3 of wordpress, at the point where your install is failing.November 26, 2011 at 7:17 pm #2187
fyi, yahoo decided to upgrade their MySQL on the very day I was planning on migrating away. 🙂November 26, 2011 at 9:02 pm #2189
Great! So all working now then?
