I've noticed this too....I've added two extra categories (with forums) and they haven't showed up. Also having the categories and forums hidden from even administrators by default seems a bit pointless to me.

Sounds like the permissions aren't setup properly. One of the quick ways around this is to copy permissions from an already established forum/category. Just make sure though that you're not setting up access to a forum for a group of users who shouldn't be getting access to it (obviously :? )

Permissions are already set on mine and I can't find anything that's even hiding it from administrator view. If it did hide from everyone by default, what's the point?

Categories will not show till at least one forum within them is viewable.

Other than that - you must remember that with phpBB3 an admin does NOT get permissions to see everything by default - he/she has to give themself that with the permission system.
