Disappearing Categories?

On my channel I utilize fully the Categories functionality of Direct Publisher.  Thus I have something like 15 or so categories defined which are correlated to my content via tags.

If you are familiar with Direct Publisher you probably understand what I am describing.

When I initially created the channel my categories appeared properly.  But over time all of my specific categories have disappeared.

Does anyone else have this issue?

BTW, my categories are still properly defined in the Channel's configuration.  Just missing on the final product which is pushed out to viewers.

I do still have showing on my channel the "Recently Added" , "Most Popular" and "Highlighted" categories.  Is Highlighted a default Roku DP category?  I can't remember.  Neither here nor there since all my other 15 or so specific categories are missing.

Thanks for your observations.  I appreciate your time.

Re: Disappearing Categories?

Have you made sure to check the flag in the developer's portal that indicates that your channel categories are defined in the feed file?
