Parent and sub-category privacy issues on mobile

Question…

I may not want anyone posting in my parent category because I want them to use the sub-categories. So I made the parent “see” only while the sub-categories are “create / reply / see.” When I do this the “see” only parent categories do not appear on the MOBILE home page category list. I do not have this issue on the desktop site.

What am i doing wrong?

Thank you,
Scot

I’m sorry, but can you explain where you are looking as I’ve read this many times and don’t understand the difference

Sorry that should have said I do not have this issue the desktop site. That’s what happens when I post at 3AM. I edited the post to be correct. Thanks for pointing that out.
