Hello there! I am reading along the forum, and I see that this is a common problem. But there are some other Magento versions, so I don’t know how to solve my problem. The screenshot below is to show how the tree is setted up. Still, on the front page, nothing showed.

Please show me how to solve this,

Cristian

I’m not sure what do you mean with “show in home page”.
You need to set for your website, the category root. After that, you can show your categories on the nav bar.

That option is into: System -> Websites, Stores & Views.

Select the Store, and set the category root.

I’m having the same problem but I don’t see where to “set the root”
I see system manage stores but no website link. Can you let me know where this is.
Thanks for your help
