Solution: Cant Create Categories in WordPress

cant create categories in wordpressAfter having created a few categories in a new wordpress blog, suddenly had the issue arise where I can’t create wordpress categories. Could not edit categories or update categories. A quick search found others having similar problems, but no solutions. In a related matter, at the same time, I found I can’t update wordpress permalinks on the edit post screen. Well, suffice it to say, I found the solution and I’m posting it here for my own reminder.

Can’t Create WordPress Categories

You’ve created the blog, added categories, created posts and pages and everything was running just fine until one day, POOF! – the editor seemed to stall, and the “edit” button seemed to go into an infinite loop.

You may have found that you can’t edit categories in WordPress either. I tried that too. Tried to edit “uncategorized” into the new one I needed, but same deal. Didn’t matter if it was on the post edit screen or the create categories screen.

Can’t update permalink

In a related issue, you may have found that you can’t edit permalinks either. The “Edit” button works, allowing editing of the url part of the post, but when you go to click the “OK” button, nothing happens and the button is unresponsive.

clicking the edit button works, but after editing, the OK button spins forever or does not respond at all

This has been a frustrating experience for both myself and my client. It was he who brought it to my attention and even I could not get it to work. Googling the problem returned results that were 2 years old at the newest and solutions ranged from “edit the categories in the database”, to “insert a .htaccess file into your wp-admin folder”.

My first thought was The Solution Is In The Log Files!

The Solution

My log files showed repeated entries of PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted —- blah blah blah, showing various amounts of memory and various .php files and wordpress plugins.

The answer is quite simple actually:

Increase memory size!

Edit your .htaccess file located in the root of your domain structure to reflect something bigger than the default. My client’s site had a default memory limit of 32 Meg. I increased it to 40 Meg and suddenly could create categories.

insert this code in your .htaccess: php_value memory_limit 40M

The inability to edit permalinks was also corrected.

If you can’t create categories in wordpress or cant edit permalinks, first check your log files, and if you see memory errors, increase the memory limit.

Visiting Winslow Arizona

Years ago when I first head the song Take it Easy by The Eagles, I never thought I’d ever myself be standing on the corner in Winslow Arizona. Alas, many years later, married and traveling by RV through the United States, the day came when indeed, the picture was taken in Winslow Arizona.

I never thought I’d ever be married to a professional photographer, but when all is said and done, I’m quite thankful that I am. Most times I think it’s just the subject, but when I sober up, I realize that in reality, it’s mostly the photographer.

We set sail in mid December on a 5 and a half month trip to to experience what the United States has to offer. Our trip takes us through Nevada where we visited from our 4 day base in , through to Phoenix Arizona where we set up camp for an entire month. Next on our list of places to visit include Tombstone Arizona, the Alamo in San Antonio Texas and then on to our second month of stay in Corpus Christi Texas.

California Set to Legalize Marijuana

In an amazing turn of events, California is set to legalize marijuana in an effort to raise monies for various state programs. Larry Wisebolt, director of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, working with T.J. Christopher of the Department of Finance have jointly proposed the method in an effort to eliminate California’s recent declaration of bankruptcy.

Mr Wisebolt stated, “We can legalize marijuana, sell it and tax it and then use the 90% of the funds to provide free health care, university tuition and eliminate homelessness, while at the same time providing more jobs”, while T.J. Christopher added that “it wasn’t an easy sell, but once we all realized how much better our state would be and the quality of life that the funds we’d get after we legalize marijuana, it was a no brainer.”

Initially thought to take a few months to implement for the first growing season, it was quickly discovered that supplies were plentiful and farmers were able to supply the much needed crops.

State financial officer predicts that the California bankruptcy can be reversed in the first year alone. He’s hoping neighboring states will come on board so that an export crop can produce even more revenue.

While Democrats and Republicans discussed the financial abundance of legalizing marijuana, football fans had another agenda, the marijuana bowl. Appropriately scheduled between the Chick-fil-a bowl and the Papajohns.com bowl, the new marijuana bowl would take place near the Mexican border. More info to come.

When prodded about their plan of implementation and projected timeline, Mr Wisebolt and Mr Christopher began giggling and said “ok, we completely made that all up”

Whats Really Going On In The World

I think this video sums up nicely what’s happening around us. Everything seems to be speeding up and I see more and more people waking up to reality about politics, government, policies, removal of freedoms and the like. Watch the video and tell me if you see anything you can relate to.

My buddy Kenny uses the term “Sheeple” more and more these days. Learn, understand, open your mind to the truth. Turn off the TV, it’s killing you. Talk to your kids, eat better food, take responsibility for your health. Be like that single sheep in the movie. Stand up to authority. Stand in your power and know that it’s THEM that need us.
