What is the difference between tags and categories?

Help!! I’ve just used the WordPress tag converter to convert my categories into tags so that I can have a nice tag cloud on the sidebar and all my categories disappeared! I have just added them all again but they now have no posts in… so if you want to see posts based on a particular category, please click on the relevant one in the tag cloud. But… does anyone know if I can reverse this particular predicament or get the relevant posts back into their previous categories? Ulp… this is what comes of leaping into something one doesn’t understand;)

Can anyone explain to me in words of one syllable what the difference is between tags and categories and why anyone would want to lose all their categories and put them into tags anyway?!! Please!!

By the way, you may have noticed also that the links to other blogs are coming up in both sidebars for some reason. If anyone can shed any light on that, I would be grateful too. I don’t mind too much – it’s not a major problem like the categories fiasco – except that the main reason for having three columns was to declutter a bit;)

New blog layout!

There we go – just like buses, no blog posts for days and then three at once….

Hope you like the new layout. Please let me know if anything doesn’t work for you – I’m still feeling my way with it. I’ve wanted three columns for ages so that the sidebar links get spread around more, and hopefully more accessible. I like it and I hope you do too.

WordPress upgrade glitch

Brenda at Serendipity and the Art of the Quilt alerted me to a problem following my recent upgrade to WordPress 2.3.1 . She had noticed that WordPress had stopped emailing comments to her. I just tested mine and found that they weren’t being emailed either, and neither are the daily spam notifications from Spam Karma. Has anyone else had this problem and found a solution to it? I have looked through the options and they are all set to email comments to me, and have tested that particular email address and it seems to be working. So any thoughts gratefully received!

UPDATE in case anyone else has this problem: Brenda found the answer and emailed me!

It seems it is a known glitch with this upgrade – see the following pages:

You can just set up an email forwarder as they say in the first page but I just deleted some code in the php file which was also mentioned and that seems to have done the trick! Hurray!
