Due to the caching on your site, the changes may not appear straight away. To purge the cache, go to Optimisation & Caching under the cog icon and click on the Purge Cache button. 

Edit a category menu

On most themes, the category menus are automatically generated based on your category tree. Some themes may limit the amount of categories that display.

If you've updated your categories and the menu has still not updated, it could be a result of caching, and it should show up within an hour. To purge the cache, go to Optimisation & Caching under the cog icon and click on the Purge Cache button. 

You can also select if a category appears in the category menu by drilling into the category and checking or unchecking Visible On Menu.
