Please change the title of your topic to something that is related to your question/issue, so that other users will be able to find their question/issue using the search engine.
Please read our forum rules: ESF General Rules
AP > Display > Homepage > Structure & Hierarchy
I believe you want the bottom middle one.


When your topic has been solved, ensure you mark the topic solved.

Hello,


May you provide us with a screenshot of the Acp (Admin panel)--->General-->Categories & forums in your admin panel. There is a small possibility that this problem can be caused by setting the categories and forums up wrong. With the screenshot, we can check that everything is set up correctly for you.

-Brandon

The tutorial could have helped, but anyway let me help you at all means I can. Smile

Looking at your screenshot, it seems that you made a category without attaching any forums (Indicated by the category title with parentheses). Also, you created a lot of forums without attaching them to their respective categories. Try doing the following:

1. ACP>General>Categories and Forums>Click the Gear Icon of the chosen forum (the ones in green balloon).
2. Click the dropdown for "Attached to:" (this is just below "Forum Name") and select the category where you want this forum to be attached to.
3. Hit Save.
4. Do the similar process to the other forums that you'd like to attach to a category.

I hope it helps.

Hello,

From what I see in the screenshot you provided, you have all the forums and categories set up wrong, that is your problem.

None of your forums are connected to the categories you created and the categories have nothing attached to them. That is why they do not display. To fix this, I would honestly recommend deleting all your current forums and starting over. This time when you create your forums, you need to make you hit the green plus icon ( Add ) that is across from the category (which are indicated by blue icons) that you want them and adding them this way. This will ensure that the forums are attached to the categories and your forum and categories are set up correctly.

Anyway, you will know when your sections and categories are set up correctly when they are set up like this screenshot: .

The sections and categories in that screenshot are set up correctly and will be displayed correctly. Set yours up like that screenshot and your problem should be resolved Wink.

Hope this helps,
-Brandon
