  1. Log into your Magento Admin Panel
  2. Go to Category ->> Manage Category
  3. magento_category_1

  4. Make sure the "default category" is highlighted and select "Add Subcategory"
  5. It's very important that you select "add subcategory" and make it a subcategory of the "root" or default category. If you do not do this, the new category you are creating will not show up in the menu.
