[solved]Inventory not showing in store front end

I have newly installed magento and added 1 item to the inventory. At the back end under “Manage Products” and “Manage Categories” the item appears to be added.

However at the store front end I am unable to view the item although the category is there.

Is there anything that I missed? Any particular table in the database that I should check to confirm the item has been added? Any html page in whichever folder I should look for?
I have tried clearing the cache but the problem persists..:(

Any help/suggestion is appreciated greatly thanks!

In the item’s “Categories” Edit page, I only ticked the subcategories but not the Root category. A stupid mistake but I didn’t think it would have mattered.
