The categories I created include "Sports" and "The Russian Political Machine" in addition to the default category "Uncategorized", which I would like to delete BTW. But the biggest problem is that, although the 2 new categories show up in the admin interface, when I go to the main page www dot the russian political machine /blog (remove spaces and change dot to "." the only thing I can see in "Sections" which is the categories dropdown box is "Uncategorized". Maybe to get the categories to show up, I have to put something in them like a post? I will try that now and if you think that will work please reply to that effect! I think maybe I will just try that now.
