What skin are you using? Sometimes different themes can display things like categories differently. Can you provide a screenshot of what you are talking about?

Obviously I will be removing the logo later but I really like this theme. Unless of course you know a similar theme that doesn't have this problem?

Thanks for the screenshot.

Are all boards placed under the "forum" category, or are there other categories that aren't showing?

i never even made a category called "forum"
i made other categories such as "general discussion" and "teenager stuff" and it isn't there. i can make a screenshot of my dashboard if needed.

I think I see what's going on.

Try going to ACP -> Display -> Structure and hierarchy -> Then select something like "Medium" from the split categories on index row. Let me know if that fixes it.

You may need to edit the templates to do that. (Which can only be done with punBB and phpBB2) I don't have as much experience working with the templates, so I'm not quite sure how you would remove that. Hopefully someone else can be a little more helpful there. Smile
