    There is an error with the categories on my website. They have all disappeared from the Categories page in the dashboard. Since they are gone, the Pages with Posts don’t work because the referenced category is missing. I tried to add the categories back on the Categories page in the dashboard, and it gives me this error: “An error has occurred. Please reload the page and try again.”

    As a test, I deactivated all of the plugins and the issue continues to exist.

    Here is the website: http://uwgalv.org/

    Thank you in advance for your help,

    Lindsey

    That is strange and looks more like a WordPress issue, so you should also search and post on WordPress.org

    So you say that if you go to Posts > Categories they are all gone.

    Now if you go to the Posts page with the list of posts, do the categories still show on each post line?

    If you go to any Posts Editing page, do Categories show on the right in the categories box?

    If you create a New post and try to add a new category in the Post editing page > category box, does it let you?

    I have also posted on WordPress.org per your recommendation.

    So you say that if you go to Posts > Categories they are all gone. Yes, they are all gone and I cannot add a new one. It gives me this error: “An error has occurred. Please reload the page and try again.”

    Now if you go to the Posts page with the list of posts, do the categories still show on each post line? No, and it now appears that both categories AND tags are gone

    If you go to any Posts Editing page, do Categories show on the right in the categories box? No, they are gone. I tried to add “test” as a new category, and when I click “add new category”, nothing happens.

    This is almost certainly not a theme issue, but something that has gone wrong and corrupted you WP database.

    I’d try to get that figured out before going too much farther. It might be wisest to get a backup of your current site, but then see if you can restore the database to before the categories disappeared. (This may take contacting your hosting company.)

    Once you have backed up everything, you can try to redo the last WordPress update too.
