The MU forums have moved to WordPress.org

wordpress.wp_1_linkcategories' doesn't exist (5 posts)

    With each non-default WP theme I try, I get the following error:

    WordPress database error: [Table 'wordpress.wp_1_linkcategories' doesn't exist]
    SELECT cat_id, cat_name FROM wp_1_linkcategories

    The error always sits in the sidebar.php where it tries to execute the following query:

    $link_cats = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT cat_id, cat_name FROM $wpdb->linkcategories");
    foreach ($link_cats as $link_cat) {
    ..

    How do I fix this? When I copy the sidebar.php from the classic theme for instance, all works great, but it doesn't look like the theme anymore ofcourse. In the faq it says: "In theory a theme could work with WP but not MU, but we've never run into one. So yes, all themes work." How do I fix this?

    Just replace that bit of code with the list category code from the themes that do work.

    I am interested too, to know how the structure of the db has changed were links/blogroll are/is concerned. I am trying to get this plugin to work with wpmu:

    http://www.vincentprat.info/wordpress/category/coding/enhanced-links/

    its a very nice way to display my blogroll, but it is looking at:


    <?php
    global $wpdb;

    $link_cats = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT cat_id, cat_name FROM $wpdb->linkcategories");
    foreach ($link_cats as $link_cat) {
    ?>

    so it does not work with wpmu...

    For simple calls like this that are the same in WP, the best place to look is in the codex. (which is currently down *sigh*)

    The way it changed was the link categories are no longer in a seperate table. They are stuffed in with the blog categories. no plans to switch it back.

    And you've got MU installed; have you actually gone and looked at the db? there's now a wp_*_link2cat
