    Hi guys

    I'm new at WP. I had a blog at WP.com but I decided to move to WP.org. I have exported and imported successfully my website from .com to .org. Everything is okay. I'm using the Twenty Eleven template. The problem is my category list is not hierarchical ordered as it was in WP.com. Does anyone know what should I do? If there's already a post about this issue, I'm sorry but I could not find it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to .ORG! Can you post a link to your site - I'm not sure which list you mean?

    Thank you, WPyogi!

    I haven't uploaded it just yet to a web hosting service. I'm still building it. But I mean the Category list in the sidebar. The blog in WP.com is http://tematicalgbt.wordpress.com/. In the side bar there's a category list (Categorias) and you can see it's showing the categories in a hierarchical way as it should.
    But in WP.org, everything is just like it was in WP.com except for that category list in the side bar that is no more in a hierarchical order.

    Oh, and, by the way, it may seem a x-rated page at first glance but it's not. It's totally PG13-rated.

    .COM and .ORG don't have all the same features, but you could try a plugin - that might give you more control:

    That's the same default Categories Widget, it comes with WP.

    1. Make sure that you really have some categories set as parent/child.
    2. Under Categories Widget settings, check box "Show hierarchy".
    3. Theme must style <ul> to allow the indentation.

    Thank you, paulwpxp!

    After your tips I looked more closely to all category options available and SHAME ON ME... In "dashboard/appearences/main side bar" if you expand the category menu it shows three options and one of them is "Show hierarchy" which was unchecked. I checked it and saved it and everything is okay now.

    Thanks for your time guys.
