Blog plugin issues (SOLVED)

I am trying to use the built in Blog page type (previously used RapidBlog/Blogger combo, but has become a bit unreliable), but I have run into a couple of issues.

Firstly, I don’t seem to be able to add a category to my test post, the area is greyed out and inactive in RW. I am using the latest 7.1 Beta and the Copper 2.0 theme from Will Woodgate (Seydesign originally).

Secondly, when I click the link in the post summary to “read more”, all formatting is lost. You can see the blog page here.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!


Thanks @dan, looks like the latest Beta (18297b) has fixed the issue!



Actually @dan , spoke too soon. The latest Beta has fixed the missing formatting on the full blog post page, but I am still unable to add categories to posts in the edit window.

See attached screenshot. I am unable to double click the selected blog, or add any categories into the categories box on the right hand side.

Check to be sure you’ve enabled the Categories:

Nah, it is just one of those things that happens. Easy to forget about it since you only set it once and then forget about it.
