Problems posting to blog section that is using categories

Just updated to Runway 3.0.2 and I am still getting persistent problems posting posts into my news section that's also using categories (default post-type). I enter my post, save then go to meta, save and then go back to the edit post screen, save again and then perhaps it might appear. Often it requires me to exit to the list of my posts and enter the post in question to edit it, and hit save one final time in order for it to appear on the website.

In contrast if I post to another post-type other than my default, for instance one called workout-diary - I can write my post, hit save - go into meta and hit save and after a short delay it will appear in the page listing. I've been over and over the templates and looked for errors but none are being output. This post-type doesn't include use of categories, i.e. the user won't be selecting any for this post-type, whereas in news they are. My diagnostics:

You'll need an update to Blog for that issue - updating Runway won't affect it.

Drew, in the addons section is saying blog it is up-to-date as Blog 5.5.1. Is that not the latest?

Yes, that's the latest. What I'm saying is that the fix will come with Blog, not with Runway.

Oh apologies! I'm with you now. I wasn't sure initially if it was an issue with just my setup.
