categories and subcategories

  1. In some instances, I can't get subcategories to drop down from the major category - ex. Self-Help is the major category and the two subcategories are "For Business" and "For the Employee." However, the two subcategories do not appear.

    In one instance, only two out of three categories drop down. Could there be some arbitrary limit on subcategories?

    Also, there appears be a limit in the number of the main categories along the masthead - five???.

    I've put considerable time and effort into this blog on wordpress.com only to find that it appears to be far too limited.

    There is very inadequate initial instruction for how to use WordPress, and which describes its limitations.

    The blog I need help with is pgbarnes.wordpress.com.

  2. Without setting custom menus, the Enterprize theme has two horizontal menus and they both have the dropdown feature. The top row displays 10 static page tabs with dropdowns to subpages. The second row displays 10 categories with dropdowns to subcategories. The number of words you use in the titles/categories you create may be affecting the number that can be displayed.

    In the second row of your horizontal menu bar I can see your "Self-Help" category and beneath it on the dropdown I see:
    What business can do
    if you are being bullied

    I cannot see a "For the Employee" category.

    If you prefer you can use the new custom menus feature:

    Have you ever wanted to have a different title for one of your pages than the label displayed in your site’s navigation? Ever wanted to change the order of the list of pages to an order you chose yourself? Ever wanted to be able to mix pages, categories, and random links in your navigation instead of your theme deciding for you? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’re in luck! The new custom menus feature will do all those things.

    To create custom menus
    The Enterprise theme has two menus. To edit your blog’s menus, access the editor via the Appearance -> Menus area of your blog’s dashboard. Instructions for setting them up are found here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/
    This article may also be helpful Custom menus arrive at wordpress.com

    I hope this solves your problem.

  3. Thanks - I finally dove in and figured out how to use the menus, which was the problem. I appreciate the time you took to respond and your gracious donation of expertise!! Pat

  4. @Pat,
