Solved Categories won't show up on the site

Post by Phantom, the Skarmory on November 16th 2011, 6:08 pm

Hi,

I had just made a new website, and I was beginning to add forums categories etc., but for some reason the only thing I (And everyone else) can see are the forums, not the categories. I know that categories wont show up unless there are forums in them, which is why I created the categories with a forum attached to it already so it would instantly show up. I've had some friends who are as good as I am with these things try and figure out the problem, but we're all pretty much stumped. So I decided to come here since the staff here usually always has a solution to a problem, and I'd rather find out the solution now and know for future reference than deleting the site and making a whole new one and hoping it'll work that time.

I doubt that the categories not showing up is because I deleted the 'Your First Forum' thing and the Basket before adding any other forums, but I might as well throw it out there is case it actually does have anything to do with the problem.

The URL to my site is...

Any and all help is greatly appreciated ! Very Happy

ACP>> DISPLAY >>HOMEPAGE (structure and hierachy)>>look to right for Index Packing >>Split categories on index (tick med or full) >> save

you might want to create another forum titled "Basket" to replace the one you deleted . thumright

Sweeeeeeet it worked!! Thanks a lot, that really helped me out. Is there any way to make it say 'Announcements' and then the forums like 'Rules' etc. on the homepage though? Like if the categories weren't split but it would show the category title on the homepage, then the forums, then another category title right after it?

Haha I think I'm going to do that too, thanks a lot. thumright

EDIT: Nvm, I just checked my site out again and what you said got it exactly how I wanted it, I just couldn't see it on my computer but I can see it on my DSi. O.o

Thanks again for helping me out ! Very Happy
