Solved Unable to create categories or forums

Post by Dragonladee on November 24th 2014, 10:41 pm

I am hoping for simple yet clear instructions on creating topics in my forum.  The only thing that appears is "Basket" 
I go to admin panel and to "Categories and Forums" but there is no option to create any new topics.

I am also a bit confused about where a new topic should be...  

Thank you for any help.

Press the Add button to create a forum/category. Also, you don't create topics in the administration panel.

Also, check your structure and hierarchy. Go to the Display => Homepage => Structure & Hierarchy. I believe Medium (bottom row) is what you'll need.

Press the  button to create a forum/category.


I feel totally like an idiot but I tried pressing those buttons...nothing happens.
Nothing is working on that page. 


So I need to go on the forum like other members would to create topics?
Also on "display"...there is no option marked "homepage"

"Homepage" is the category name. Under the homepage box is "Structure and Hierarchy"

Yes, you must create threads like normal members. (We're being belittled!)

Also, can you send me a test account with administrative access via PM?

Thanks.
