    I’m using Structure by Organic Themes, and created a bunch of categories such as:
    TYPE: Appetizer, Brunch, Main Course.

    I’ve tried adding categories as drop-down, hierarchy, or post count, but none of those categories show up. It’s just a plain categories wording.

    Any luck on that?
    Thanks.

    The Categories you assign in your dashboard > Adding Categories via Your Dashboard must be assigned to posts (not pages) Adding Categories with the Categories Module and will not display until there is a published post in each category.

    Pages are static. They sit outside of the blog structure and you cannot post to multiple pages in any blog. There is only one main page for posts in a blog and all posts will show on the main blog page. There is no way to exclude posts from the main posts (blog) page.

    What’s critical is:
    (1) a clear comprehension of the differences between pages and posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/
    (2) a clear comprehension of the fact that there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page. But we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page. We organize posts by assigning categories to them. You can create a custom menu and add the categories into the custom menu.
