    I just installed at

    It doesn’t look right to me. How would a user post a new topic? I added a category called Genealogy, but it doesn’t show up on this page.

    How do I get my categories to show up? Shouldn’t there be an “add” button somewhere?

    Please keep answers as simple as possible!

    Do you wish to post to a category by a visitor of your website? If yes, you will have to go for a complex process. Need to install and activate a compatible plugin etc.
    If your categories are not displaying in your blog, then you will have to add proper widgets to your current theme. If you’re a newbie to WordPress, then please go through the page at: and sub pages one by one.



    Thanks. I had skimmed through some of those files, but not one by one. I guess I had hoped 5 minutes was all I would have to invest and my installation would be complete. I’ll start studying.
