    I have two blogs which I use regularly and in the first one all my categories are showed on the top and people can click on them. In this one however I can’t see them on the top and because of the subject it’s important to be able to go to the categories. I have looked everywhere but couldn’t find options to turn this on or off, how can I do this?

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

    Some additional information: The other blog is thinkingandart.wordpress.com, where you can see the categories above my posts. In this blog, lessonsdutch.wordpress.com you can just see ‘about’ and ‘how to use method’, not categories like ‘grammar’.

    re: http://lessonsdutch.wordpress.com/
    Are you saying you created a custom menu and added categories pages to it and they are not displaying? http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/

    NOTE: Until you publish a post in each category there is no data that can be displayed.

    Yes, you can go to the category, but the tabs at the top of the posts only show the ‘about’ tab at the left and the ‘How to use this course’ tab at the right. On my other blog, you have all the categories in those tabs, but that seems to be done automatically, I just don’t know how I can let that happen in this blog in which it is needed.

    I found out a way to bring the categories in the tabs, but now when I go to one of the tabs I just get the posts as a whole while on my other blogs I get a list with the posts. Is there an option to make them a list?

    Whether or not full posts, permalinked or thumbnails are displayed on Categories Pages and Archives pages is theme dependent ie. it’s coded into the template and we cannot edit templates or themes. http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/editing-themes/

    In the majority of themes, posts on category or other archive pages show up just as they do on the main posts page in the blog and the number displayed is also the same. (See this page > Settings > Reading and note how many posts you choose there sets it for all). But in some themes only the beginnings of posts are shown, and in a few themes you only get titles or thumbnails. See here for a partial list of free themes that may display the way you want > Category/archive pages: full posts or not http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/03/25/full-posts-in-archive-pages/

    I already solved it with the other themes which you gave me a link to. Thank you.
