Blog Categories not working after section change

The function stopped working after I deleted the default blog section called 'blog' (because I wanted new blog posts to be assigned to a different section I created).

Adding section 'blog' back in and assigning blog posts to this section does not work.

I've rebuilt pages several times.

Can someone help me fix this?

The diagnostic report is below

The function stopped working

Can you show us which function you're using?

<?php
    perch_blog_categories(array(
        'template' => 'category_tabs.html',
    ));
?>    

category_tabs.html is saved in cms/addons/apps/perch_blog/templates/blog/category_tabs.html

Do you still have a category set with the slug blog ?

Hi Drew, Yes.

Can you turn on debug for the page and let me know what it outputs?

How do you do that?

Have you reassigned the posts to the new section since creating it?

yes. I am sure I did that. To be honest what I want is for posts to be assigned to section "case studies" by default
