I can't rename or delete certain Categories

Hi guys,

I've run into a problem as mentioned in the title... My client is a pet food distributor, and one of the vendors is called Dr. Harvey's. We will have three categories for most of the vendors, in this case they are... Dr. Harvey's Pet Food, Dr. Harvey's Treats and Dr. Harvey's Supplements.

The president was over here yesterday and I hadn't set up the categories in this way so I'm rearranging the products from the way I had them.

In renaming the categories for all of them I've had no problem... except for Dr. Harvey's. Both the Rename and Delete buttons move but no action results. No renaming popup. Nada.

I believe this is because of the apostrophe in Harvey's. That's because I tried making a new one without the period in Dr first and got the same result.

Is there a workaround? Will I need to find and then go into the database manually to get rid of the categories that will be rendered "bad" 'cause they'll still be showing up on the left menu list? (See below)

Ah! Wait! I do see in another thread that I can delete categories through the productcategories_Results.php page, so apologies for that. Oh, but that page is the page I'm already using with no result for this specific instance... back to the above question about the database. Actually, on further research, I think I'm going to have to delete and reinstall Wamp after saving the www folder and redo the database/table/categories/products...

But I would still like to ask... Is there a way to make it display the apostrophe in the name when it displays in the browser? Maybe by using ´ or ??

Thanks!

Iggy

UPDATE! I went into the database from PHPmyAdmin and put in the ´ that way instead of the apostrophe... and it worked! Woot!

So folks... -never- put an apostrophe in a Category name, it'll stop the code from finishing!

Thanks...

Iggy
