Categories and Tags
I have posted several posts with tags and categories selected. However, when I go to “Blogs About:” my post is not appearing.
There are several Categories where I am the Featured Blog and in that Feature Blog window, my most recent post appears but it is not listed in the blogroll. And for those Categories that I am not the featured Blog, my posts are not appearing in the roll.
An example of a Featured Blog Category is:
An example of one where I am not is:
With this post listed under ACE:
Are there known issues or am I doing something wrong?
The blog I need help with is: tarheelred.wordpress.com

I did, but just a bit ago. I’ll letcha know what they say.
However, I did notice the same symptoms as reported in the other funky problem regarding categories and tags. When I went to edit, all the tags had been dropped and the post was categorized as UNcategorized. I rebuilt the post and saved it, but no joy.
Definitely staff will need to get involved then. Sounds very funky indeed.
Guys and gals,
Staff has resolved the error.
Thanks for taking time to check it out and guiding me to support for help.
When there’s a problem we volunteers can’t solve, learning more about it helps us help others in the future. So I would really appreciate it if you could tell us what the error was.

Support didn’t tell me. I’ll paste the entirety of their reply:
Sorry for that error – the blog now works as it should.
Thank you pino!
(We weren’t enlightened, but that’s not your fault…)
Can anyone answer this for me? If I create a post and use a tag of my own choosing that may not have been used by others yet (for the argument, let’s say my tag is “Inception”), is it a safe assumption then that if I go to http://en.wordpress.com/tag/inception/ I should see my post? Because that is clearly not the case, and I thought that’s how the “tag” pages were supposed to work. The only post that comes up is a random post from 2006 (This random post appears any time I try this method with Unique tags). The tag pages definitely don’t work for several of the tags I use.
Sorry – I realized the Inception tag wasn’t a good example to use. A tag I actually used was “Black Swan”, and the question is more easily understood if you try going to http://en.wordpress.com/tag/black swan.
My post doesn’t appear even though I’ve used that tag a couple times now in different posts. Thanks!
I see a lot of posts on your blog with too many tags. In general, anything more than a combined total (tags + categories) of 10 can get you left off the global tags pages.
