    The Major/Minor will disappear if you delete the define for 'CAT_BOX_HEADING_3'.
    You did not add the defines for 'CAT_BOX_HEADING_37' and 'CAT_BOX_HEADING_199' as I directed you to do; instead, you have a define for 'CAT_BOX_HEADING_10'.

    I guess I got lost with the first instructions you sent me. You told me to name them the numbers of our folders which were Designs starting with 10 and Clipart starting with 300. That's why they were named like that. I have adjusted per your recommendations now. I went through and deleted references to box 3 and I still have the Minor Heading. Not sure where else to look for that, which sheet I need to look at. Thank you so much for all the help you have given me. I'm so sorry to be such a pain. I started fresh this morning looking at your instructions and the php and css sheets. These are the only sheets I have installed for this mod as I didn't want the buttons. I'm a lot closer to what I wanted now than I was before, but still don't have the categories in the right boxes.
    Thanks again,
    Ellen

    Maybe I have not made clear what numbers you are supposed to be using for the defines.
    When you say 10 and 300, are those the sort orders you gave to the first categories in each set? The sort orders are irrelevant to us except for getting the categories in the right order.

    The important numbers are the "cPath" (or category id for top cats). You can find this in Catalog > Categories/Products; looking at the list of categories, the cat id is on the left edge. You never said which categories are supposed to be the first ones in each group, so I had to assume it was NEW PRODUCTS for Designs and the second Animals for Clipart. These are categories 37 and 199, which is why I told you to make those specific defines.

    You cannot get the Major/Minor headings without a define in categories_dressing_defines.php for CAT_BOX_HEADING_3. Find that line and delete it.

    Very strange, because that is not the file that is controlling your menu display, at least not the only file. Somewhere there is a file with defines for categories 10 and 3. Are you sure about what files are in /includes/languages/english/extra_definitions/cherry_zen/ ?

    I see you have gotten an extra "1" in the defines, which in that position would be read as an image filename and not work correctly. That might explain why the clipart heading is not working. The other define has a stray [ in front of it which is most likely disabling it completely. They should look exactly like this (copy & paste):
    PHP Code:
    define ('CAT_BOX_HEADING_37','1|0|||Designs|1');//new list - text heading - style 1
    define ('CAT_BOX_HEADING_199','1|0|||Clipart|1');//new list - text heading - style 1

    You were right it looks to me like when I installed it the program copied it to other places. I have it right now and the site looks just like we wanted it to.
    Thank You so much for your advise and patients with me!

    Somthing like this?

    Category one
    subcat-1 subcat-4
    subcat-2 subcat-5
    subcat-3

    Category two
    subcat-1 subcat-4
    subcat-2
    subcat-3

    Category three
    subcat-1 subcat-4
    subcat-2 subcat-5
    subcat-3 subcat-6

    Thank you

    Yes, limelites has done it on at least one of his sites - you could look at the view source and the CSS to see how it is organized.
    Essentially, you would make a new category group for the set of subcats you want in the second column, then give both groups widths just less than half of the total sidebox space. Probably the best way to put the second column beside the first is to give it position: absolute; and top: and left: properties to put it where you want it. Nothing else will be trying to occupy that space to the right of the first column, so everything should fit neatly.
