Missing Screen Options with 3.3.1 (5 posts)

    Hello Everyone,
    So I am attempting to put my show only certain categories on various pages of my site, which is an option with my theme, but the Categories option is not showing up under SCREEN OPTIONS.

    I have already deactivated jetpack and it was the only plug-in that I have since I just started working on the site. As you can see I'm missing a good amount of options under the Screen Options tag and I don't know why.

    Does anyone know what might be wrong?

    Pages cannot be associated with Categories and cannot be assigned Tags. The organizational structure for Pages comes only from their hierarchical interrelationships, and not from Tags or Categories.

    Do you mean for posts? As, posts have these options.

    I just got a response but it's not showing up as a reply on here so I'll just respond.

    Ok maybe I didn't explain right because i've done it plenty of times with older sites.

    I have created various categories and I place specific posts in specific categories. My pages are each set as blogs and usually the Categories option shows up on my screen options so I that when a person goes to that page they only see those particular blog posts on that page. EXAMPLE: if I am writing about Comic-Con, the CC page shows only blog posts about ComicCon. The DragonCon page will show only posts about DC.

    For some reason with this new 3.3.1 I am not given all my screen options like I usually have.

    Thoughout my time on wordpress over the past few years, I've always done it hard coded, using theme templates.

    You can do it as suggested here:

    You can always try something like this:

    Came up from a plugin search of 'categories on pages'
