Hello all,

I have a problem with my metadata: In thumbnail view, digikam does not 
show all my tags/keywords. For example, in one picture it only shows the 
tag "Person", but not the sub-tag "Sabine", and not the location tag. 
When searching for these tags, the pictures don't show up. Strangely, 
only pictures which also have ratings do show the correct Tags in 
In the right side bar under "Metadata" however, all keywords are shown 
correctly for the same picture, written to the IPTC. Therefore, I'm sure 
the tags are there, they just don't seem to be in the database (which I 
just re-scanned).

This behaviour only appeard after the last crash and re-installation 
(version 3.0.0. for windows xp). I have roughly 20.000 pictures in my 

Any advice is welcome.

Greetings and thanks,
