I created categories for my store and added a few products. Everything was going great, but when I went to add a product today I noticed there were no categories to select. I went to the manage categories screen and all the categories are gone.

When I view the store, the categories appear and the products are all listed in the proper categories - the categories seem to have just disappeared on the admin side?

I have:

--- Cleared all caches in admin
--- Manually deleted cache in /var/cache
--- Made sure the proper category was selected in “Manage Stores” (the category is “Products” - I guess that is correct? I can’t remember if I may have renamed the root category when I installed)

Anyone have any ideas?

No one else has experienced this? I can’t figure out how the categories can exist on the front end but not on the back end..

Also, I can not add a new category now. I tried adding a new root category and nothing happens when I click save changes… ? When I hit “reset” the tabs are still visible, but everything else disappears - all of the form elements ??

I found a solution to my problems:

Apparently, /js/extjs/ext-tree-checkbox.js lost its permissions. I reset to 644 and everything is working fine now.

Had the same problem, I just replaced the whole js folder to the remote site which worked for me, next time it happens I’ll know to change the permissions!
