Im not really understand but try to go in Administration panel -> Display -> structure & Hierarchy

Set how you want.

Is this that what you want, or something else?

For categories to display you need to have at least one forum appended to them. If I remember correctly I believe split categories was the one that showed the catg. name?

Try that:
Administration Panel > Display > Homepage > Structure and hierarchy

Find 'Split categories on index' and choose the 'medium' setup, then save.

Many thanks for the replies, know where i went wrong and it was through a mad rush to set up the forum some years ago for some friends to use but they then did the dirty trick and took everyone i had away so then have been trying to build up my members ever since.

any way for the time been i am going to leave things as they are, done the categorises and stuff.

got a more pressing issue and after ploughing money in to the forum for a good few years am struggling just to get members, tried all sorts of tips from the net and this is how poor my situation is, i then tried a forum competition offering vouchers etc just for posting most messages to the winner and only 1 person joined in!

so am now looking at the viability of running the forum and will make a decision after Christmas if to continue.

am a wee disappointed at the situation but will keep trying to see what else i can do.

any tips more than welcome.
