    Just installed wp and everything seems to work fine but when i add new categories in the admin panelthey don't show up in my blog. Also: After adding new Pages i'm using the checbox to change the pageorder but also nothing changes in the blogfrontpage. I don't get any errormessages, just nothing happens...please help!

    Categories won't show up until they have a post assigned to them.

    The second one is tougher to ask without knowing more about the theme you're using (or even a link to the blog).

    Thx, I can see the categories now!
    I'm using the default(Kubrick)theme right now but quess i will change that later, does that matter?
    Hope you can help me fix this too.

    It'll most likely matter as many themes manage the page display differently. Some actually pay attention to your Page settings! Some don't.

    "Pageorder" by itself doesn't work. You have to have the proper parameter set in your template tag that displays the Pages list:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/wp_list_pages
    see parameters > sort_column

    I put this code:

      <?php wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order&title_li=<h2>' . __('Pages') . '</h2>' ); ?>

    in sidebar.php of the defaulttheme i'm using but it doesn't work...
    What am i doing wrong?

    And now setting the Page order in the admin doesn't work?
    It always works for me.
