Nesting Categories / Hiding till clicked?

Hi all - I recently setup the Silicon theme and Vanilla Forums for my engineering group. I've created a bunch of different categories, and some will have sub categories where I will assign a specific role and make the sub-category private. I have nested all the groups but they all show up in 1 long list. Is there a way to make them hide until the main category is clicked? and then discussions live below the sub-categories? I can't seem to figure it out

    there is something like this in the addons section I can't recall the name.

    but you can type category or categories in the addon search bar and you should be able to find something like that.

    have you tried any of the category related plugins, if so what.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    I have tried all 3 that I could find: CategoriesDropdown, ExpandableCategories, SubCategories. I tried it with the default theme, and now I am using Silicon theme. They don't seem to do anything. The categories stay in a long list. I also made sure to turn off things like "Place nested categories in a comma-delimited list when they are NEVER". Do I need to edit something with the plugin? None of them seem to add functionality to the dashboard.
