Hi,

Pasting in the part of the page is unlikely to show us what the problem is, because it will not copy through any Javascript code, and the styles may be different. A screenshot would work much better.
That said, looking at this I see no category selected, only that the root category is expanded.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

It showed as expanded and selected. I found the problem. I was using IE8 which has some issues based on the PC I was using. Switched to Firefox (latest) and it worked fine. No issues with OcPortal. The version of IE8 that I use cannot be upgraded due to PC limitations.

Ah, okay, we will take a look to see if this is broken in all IE8.
