I believe that "Paintball" page is just a normal page, not a category page containing posts. I think you'll need to set up a category page for "Paintball" first and then add that link to the navigation menu using custom menus.

Ok I am not really sure of the difference between the pages. All the pages I set up are all set up the same way. Under pages I added a page, Gave it a name under Menu Name, and added the categories from the left. Now if you go here

Ah, I see it now. If you use a Custom Menu (Appearance > Menus), you can add the link

as a menu item to the primary navigation. That way, when you click on it in the menu, it goes to the category page automatically. Once you've done that, there is a way to hide that "Currently viewing..." text at the top of the page and you won't need a separate normal "Paintball" page.

Thanks for the help. I made one menu and under that put all the categories as custom links and nested the ones i wanted to go in the drop down. all works like i want it to. The only thing left that I cant figure out is the removal of the "Currently Viewing..." text at the top. Anyone know the answer to that?

- Go to PlatformPro > Settings > Template Setup.
- Select "Posts Page Content Area" from the dropdown and move "Posts Info" to the inactive area.
