WordPress Problem – Home Page Showing Posts From Only One Category

wordpress_logo Sometimes your wordpress blog’s home page will show posts from only one category, and you may think that other posts got deleted. Here we will provide you the solution for resolving this problem in your blog.

First of all, none of your post has been deleted, so don’t worry about data loss. Problem scenario is, The index.php (home page of blog) is showing posts from one category only. Now here is the solution to rectify this problem in your wordpress blog.

You are facing this issue because of the the plug-in WP Super Cache. If this plugin is installed in your blog, then go ahead and do the following changes.

  • Delete the cache from wordpress admin dashboard
  • Go to the admin page of WP Super Cache where you can see the “WP Super Cache Status” at the top of the window.
  • If it is currently on “ON” then change it to “HALF ON”. It means you have disabled the Super Cache. Now only “WP-Cache” is enabled.
  • Clear the cache of the browser as well.

That’s it. You will not face the issue again. Since the super cache is disabled, you are not using GZip provided by the plugin. To use the GZip in other way, you can go thru our older post “Very simple way to GZip your blog”.
