    I know I replied to you via PM, but does the Drag and Drop not work in the backend?

    You can make categories subcategories by dragging them around in the dashboard. Check out and drag'n'drop under the heading 'Organize Categories'.

    If you drag a category to the right, it should indent one level and now be a subcategory of the category above it.

    You did. That link doesnt work though. Also, on desktop, my cats are all individual. But when I view the site on my mobile the cats are all messed up. This is what it looks like when viewing on my mobile Why does it look like that for? The DIY Drones cat is just set as default same as all of them.

    That is not a real link, it is an example. go to /vanilla/settings/managecategories on you forum

    I answered you in another discussion, best not to cross post to save confusion.

    If you are having problems with the display of category, that is a styling issue. You are missing the styling to categories or something is wrong with the css.

    If you can't move or save categories. Then you have a either a JavaScript error caused by some addon, or there isn't write access to conf/config.php (although you would be having further issues, such not being able to enable plugins. )

    grep is your friend.

    Hmm now Im even more confused! Okay so I dont think its a read/write issue. And don't think its a JS error either.

    I tested the site in Browsershots and it sort of seems okay.

    I can't understand why it looks like this on my mobile though!

    I've since changed the category order around and it still showing like that on my mobile.

    This is pissing me off now. Why is it doing that!?

    Think it might have been something to do with the images that I set for the cats. Removed them and not doing it now.
