How to add categories

where can I define categories on my instance?

thanks,
Emma

Go to /categories, to the right of the navigation is a menu, Create Category should be in it.

Have a read through some of the topics in the #howto section – they’ll guide you through a lot of this setup stuff.

I have the latest version of Discourse. I’m getting it organized before launching it to the public. The option to add new categories is missing. I follow the instructions:
" To add a category, visit the categories page , then click Create Category at the upper right."
There is no “Create Category” button so I’m at a dead end. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

While on the Categories page, click this button and you should see the New Category button.

You’re on the latest page. That button only shows up on the categories page. You get to the categories page by clicking on this:
