Solved My categories don't show

Post by taut on March 6th 2010, 2:22 pm

Hi, I have a problem with my skin. My category names don't show on the site, and I wonder if it's a part of the skin I installed or if something's wrong? In any way, I need help to make them appear!

Hi Smile
You need to put something in the category for it to show.
So if you want a General Chat forum.
Have Category "General Chat" then have !st forum named the same "General Chat".
Now when viewing forum you should see "General Chat" showing in menu, just the once. Wink

How it should look in Administration Panel.

Hi Smile
That is the "Category"

So in the Admin Panel go General > Categories & forums > + (Add link) > Create Category title Gossip Column.
This will not show until you add forums.
In your Admin Panel go General > Categories & forums > Then click the + in the Gossip category to add forums.

I've done that. That's why I think that it might be how the skin just is? This is the link to my site: imhog.forumotion.com

I've made two different categories, but it only shows the foras.

Admin Panel => Display => Homepage then click on ''Structure and hierarchy'' from there you can choose Split categories on index: Medium then Save

Try that and see if it helps

Hi Smile
I can't really tell from that what you have done.
It looks like they are all forums with just one subforum.

Mine.

Admin panel.

http://img704.imageshack.us/img704/4615/06032010135448.png

Forum menu.

http://img96.imageshack.us/img96/4750/06032010135542.png


N.B. Categories are "Blue" Forums "Green".

Shown here is Category "Red box".
Forum "Blue box".
Sub-forum "Green box".

Edit: Of course as BlueSky points out.
You need to set the Structure etc.
lol!
Forgot that.... Oh my god

Here is a screenshot of that too!!! Wink
