Hi, is there something I need to change somewhere so that when adding a category to the menu it displays and functions? At the moment I've added the categories to the menu but they're not displaying as a drop down list.

I've just tried the same thing on the old .com blog using twenty twelve and it seems to work fine.

Any ideas?

Thank you for any help in advance.

Just using the menu option under 'Appearance' It's fine if I set up a new page but to use the menu with listed categories, they just don't appear.

so at dashboard->apperances->menus, In the 'Theme Locations->Menu 1' option you have a menu
then if you select that menu in the main section and add a category to it and hit 'Save Menu' - are you saying when you go to the front end, that new category doesn't show up?
are there any posts in that category?

also note if you have 'cat a' and you add a 'cat b' and say it is a sub category of 'cat a', 'cat b' won't automatically show up in the menu when you add 'cat a'. You have to manually add 'cat b' and if you want it as a sub menu item, you need to move it to the right of 'cat a'

actually you could make 'cat a' a sub menu of 'cat b' if you wanted. the custom menu is very powerful...
