Wordpress updated this morning & since then the categories option is empty (Seller Dashboard – Add New Product – Choose A Category – No categories)
All product categories are still visible on the main menu and in WooCommerce when you add a product, but the Dokan Frontend Add Product – Choose a category shows no options and only shows ‘No Categories'. This means that sellers are unable to add products.
Please allow use some time. We are checking this issue and trying to fix this problem. Today developers are not available. They will be available from tomorrow(Sunday). After their coming back they will work out a solution certainly.
A temporary work-around seems to be to allow only single category in the dokan settings. This bypasses the problem.
As marketplace owner/admin, go to Dokan>settings>category selection [dropdown menu] select “single” and save.
We need each product to be able to have multiple categories, but this works for us to allow sellers to continue to work on their products. They can select any of the categories, of course, but only one for each product. We can input the other categories for them on the back end, they must send us support request to do this. Temporary work-around. I hope it helps others to know this.
