I have two sites both using the Twenty Sixteen theme, and though I thought I had the settings pretty much identical, I have noticed that on one the Category of a post will appear underneath the date and above the tags, but it doesn't on the other, even though the post has definitely been assigned to a Category. I have poured over the settings and can't figure out what is making the difference. Does anybody have any suggestions?

I think with the one that is not showing the category, you did not put the category widget in that sidebar area.

Hmm, no, I did add the Category widget. I just went and double-checked to be sure.

Thank you for your input, I will keep poking around at it until I figure it out. :)

So with some further exploration I found a site that said the Category would not appear in the post if all the posts on your blog were in the same Category. I wasn't sure if that would be it, since both blogs only had one post and one was showing while the other wasn't, but sure enough after making another post in a different Category, both posts are now showing the Category. Mystery solved!

Hi, Amanda!

What are the URLs for your sites. I'll look at them.

This is the site where the Category is showing with the post: teaforlife @ siterubix. (Sorry, it won't let me put a proper link.)

And this is the one where it's not: theanimeotaku @ siterubix.

Thank you for taking a look, I appreciate it!
