Subcategory Bug: Nested Subcategories Are Not Displayed On the Sidebar

UPDATE:

this issue has been completely (I hope) fixed. at least as you can see it’s all right with this theme.

thank you guys for care and support!

as you can see this post is filed under ‘Wordpress.com’ category, but where is this category link on my sidebar?

simple test:

1) create two nested categories like this:

  • Parent
    • Child

2) create a post and file it under ‘Child’ category

instead of expected link to the ‘Child’ category, you can see NOTHING on the Sidebar under ‘Categories’ section.

and yes, since my categories has an hierarchical structure, Category widget has a ’Show Heirarchy’ option turned on. I hope it does not implies any ’security over features matter’ and allowed not only on the paid hosted wp install.

I also mentioned this bug in the “non-empty subcategories are NOT displayed on the sidebar” forum thread (a week ago; no reply to feedback yet), before that I’ve asked in this thread (more than month ago; no reply yet), also this issue was filed as a feedback on 04/19 (and I got one reply from Andy).

after I had to study http://trac.wordpress.org  I found that Ryan made changes into relevant functions, not sure if they fix this bug or ported into MU core.

Internet Storm Center Infocon Status

“We are still analyzing the trojan dropped by the exploit. What we do know is that it communicates back to localhosts[dot]3322[dot]org via HTTP. It is proxy-aware, and “pings” this server using HTTP POSTs of 0 bytes (no data actually POSTed) with a periodicity of approximately one minute. It has rootkit-like functionality, hiding binary files associated with the exploit (all files on the system named winguis.dll will not be shown in Explorer, etc.), and invokes itself automatically by including the trojan binary in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\Run.

Note that, as of this morning, no anti-virus signatures detected this file as problematic according to virustotal.com
