Category pages in Homepage

we have just upgraded to the most recent version of photopost and after a small hiccup it is now displaying fine (thanks chuck! :))

There is however one question:
Previously all the categories were displayed on the homepage with their index thumbnails. Unfortunately now we only see the categories in the sidebar and they are not coming in the index page.
On the index there is currently only the 'most recent' boxes.

We are wondering whether this is a setting we missed and if so, where we can find it?

Please note that we don't want to have the 'forum style' display on the index - just the categories with their thumbnails.

We are looking forward to hear from you!
Thank you for your help!

Did you change your categories view. In Layout Options in Admin make sure you have set to use the forum style view and the index will show as you want. ;)

When we change to forum style view, all category thumbnails come on the left and the title next to it.
Before it was showing the categories all next to each other (five or six rows) when it was not in forum view.
Did you remove that in the new version?
It just seems wrong that the homepage only displays the 'most recent' pictures and nothing of the categories except for the sidebar ... ???

If your referring to the way old style non forum style view that was not really used correct that was removed a year and a half ago.

The choices you have are the new updated category list view or the forumstyle view which 99.9% of users use.

Mmmh, I didn't know that the previous view was not available anymore. I tried finding a site (in this subforum :) ) which uses the new forum style to look but unfortunately couldn't find any.
The problem is that it just seems so empty in the middle, in between the category and the views... do you have any suggestions how we can change that?:

The choice you have is category list on sidebar or the forum style category list.

You can under layout options set more photos to show on the index to fill in just a different view.
