I\’m allmost done with adding my final category in the magento backoffice when it suddenly disappears. At first I thaught it was deleted but it isn\’t…
The weird thing is that the category isn\’t viewable in the backoffice but it is when you go to the url… Is anybody familiar with this problem?

What version? Yes, it’s happened before. Make two complete database backups, one preferably a database dump from the command line if you have ssh access.

Check to see it’s not something like this happening

Use phpMyAdmin to look for corrupted paths in your category table listed in the above link. You may have had a bad save on the row for that particular category.
