I am trying to fold certain categories underneath new top-level categories. To do this, I need to make the new top-level categories, but as soon as I add them and click into the child (to set the new category as its parent) the new parent cat disappears.
Not sure why, but if I think because the admin won't show blank categories? If I try to add it again, it updates the slug with 'catname-#' and keeps incrementing the number value. Tried poking around the wp-admin code, but I don't feel comfortable guessing at it.
Thank you so much for your time.
