    Both can be resolved by going into your Admin panel for WordPress.
    As for categories, did you add them through the panel or do it manually?

    By default, new categories won't show up until you post to them. If you're using WP 1.2, change this line in your index.php to show the empty categories as well.
    In line 71
    <?php wp_list_cats(); ?>
    to
    `<?php wp_list_cats('hide_empty=0'); ?>
