Users running a non-download version of Vanilla (pulled from github), on branch release/2019.016 or master from the last 2 weeks should upgrade to release/2019.017 or latest master for security reasons. Downloaded official open sources releases are not affected.
Please upgrade here. These earlier versions are no longer being updated and have security issues.

Dashboard > Forum > Categories Missing

Issue: Our forum is missing the "Categories" link in the left hand Dashboard menu under "Forum".

I've Tried:

  • Checking the css... I can't find anything hiding the categories. Also, the theme is the same for our forum and our test forum, but the test forum shows the categories link fine. I'm using the Silicon Theme.
  • Looking for missing files. I'm unsure which file I should be looking for.
  • Checked the config file. Settings mentioning categories are: Vanilla.Categories.HideModule = false; / Vanilla.Categories.Use = true; / Routes.DefaultController = array('categories', 'Internal');

Any help is really appreciated
