Solution: wp_nav_menu Not Appearing on Category Template

Today while working on a site I came across a problem that seemed weird to me. The wp_nav_menu() was working fine on all the pages except for my category page. When I took a detailed look, I found that it was caused by conflict of custom post type.  So how did I fix it?

Here is a quick fix. Copy and paste the following code right above the place where you have called the wp_nav_menu() function.

  if(is_category()) {
    $wp_query = NULL;
    $wp_query = new WP_Query(array('post_type' => 'post','page'));

      'fallback_cb' => 'false')
