Categories created from Write Post do not resolve

When creating a category from the Write Post screen, the category is properly created and can have posts assigned to it. However, when trying to list all posts in the category (using Date and Time style permalinks), it pulls up a 404. If the category is deleted and add through Manage Categories, though, it reolves correctly.

Works for me.

Test procedure:

  1. "Write"
  2. Add title and text for entry
  3. Add "test" category
  4. Publish post
  5. View blog and click "test" category listed under the new post
  6. "test" category displays, showing the post just published.

Please reopen if you have new information (don't regard closing as a dismissal!)

Reopening because test procedure provided above was tried for me and did not work. I tried the "test" category under the new post and the "test" category under my category lists, with both pulling up 404. As mentioned before, only creation of the category in the Manage Categories section works.

Works just fine here under both the latest SVN and v2.0.1. Permalinks enabled on both.

Are you absolutely using WP 2.0.1? Have you tried with trunk? Have you tried re-uploading the files in /wp-includes/ and /wp-admin/ ?

Re-uploading the includes and admin corrected this problem - must have been an inadvertant mod in there somewhere. Thhanks for the suggestion.
