It seems that the only things that display on the homepage are items that are children of the “root catalog” category, which is different than the “root” category, which is the default parent category when creating a new category.
I was able to drag and drop one of my categories into the “Root Catalog” category, and now it shows up on the homepage. However, it won’t let me move other categories into the “Root Category” folder. I attached an image so you can see where I’m trying to do the drag and drop. As you can see, Audio/Video is a subcategory of Root Catalog. If I try and drag that folder, I get custom drag icons indicating where I can or can’t drop the folder. With the other categories, though, I get the Windows XP system “can’t drag” icon (the circle with a line through it).
