#13870 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

tags to category import functionality broken

Reported by: mrmist Owned by:

Severity: normal Version: 3.0

The convert tags to categories part of the cat2tag "importer" doesn't seem to be working. It looks to be referencing a URL that no longer exists (Maybe it was how it used to work?)

The error is -
PHP Warning: include(E:\webpage\svn\trunk/wp-admin/import/wp-cat2tag.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in E:\webpage\svn\trunk\wp-admin\admin.php on line 175 PHP Warning: include(): Failed opening 'E:\webpage\svn\trunk/wp-admin/import/wp-cat2tag.php' for inclusion (include_path='.;C:\php5\pear') in E:\webpage\svn\trunk\wp-admin\admin.php on line 175 PHP Warning: call_user_func() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, no array or string given in E:\webpage\svn\trunk\wp-admin\admin.php on line 192

Which is seen after installing the importer, then clicking the "Tags to Categories" button.

Categories to tags shows a list of categories ready for conversion, but attempting to click the "Convert categories to tags" button also displays the above error.

I'm not seeing this... wp-admin/import is completely gone. All importers have become plugins.

This was an issue for a short period of time after the converters were removed. It has been fixed now:
