Getting unexpected "Let's start the discussion!" message

I recently re-organized my categories and created sub-categories. Ever since then I’ve started getting the following message at the top of site:

Let’s start the discussion! There are 1 / 5 topics and 1 / 30 posts – visitors need more to read and reply to. Only staff can see this message.

My Discourse site has been active for over a year and I have plenty of topics and posts, so I don’t understand why I’m seeing this.

I’m guessing I might have screwed something up when I re-organized the categories/sub-categories.

Any suggestions on how I can resolve this?

Have you changed the categories to be restrictive (private) if so, this message is displayed in the absence of public topics.


That’s exactly what I’ve done Bhanu and it makes complete sense now! Thank you!
