Until there is a post published and had a category assigned to it there is nothing for the Categoires widget to display. Start here please if you haven’t already done so: Adding Categories via Your Dashboard Then edit your posts and Add Categories to them with the Categories Module and click “update”. Lastly place the Categories Widget in your sidebar > Appearance > Widgets > Categories Widget. Click the widget to open it. Configure the widget. Click “Save” and then “Close”.
