Description Trevor Burnham 2006-04-15 05:37:43 UTC
I recently upgraded my wiki from 1.5.7 to 1.6.3, by moving the new files in place over the old ones and running the update script.  All 
went smoothly, except that now, all category pages only display their descriptions; they do not list member articles or images.  I have no 
idea what could be causing this.

Fatal error: Call to undefined method Article::openShowCategory

My immediate suspicion is an incomplete upgrade of files; check 
things like index.php in particular. A lot has changed in the 
initialization code from 1.5 to 1.6.

Thanks again!
