  <p><strong>Name - </strong>The name of the category. This will appear in the 
    tabs and when a person creates a new post, they will be asked to select a 
    <strong>Tab Order</strong> - This is the order you want the tabs to appear 
    in. Enter numbers 1,2,3,4,5...etc. <br>
    <strong>Edit</strong> - Change the name or the Tab Order. If you change the 
    name, all postings within that category will not be affected.<br>
    <strong>Delete</strong> - If you delete a category, all posts within that 
    category will not be deleted, but live soley in the 'All' category.</p>
  <p> If you are unsure about what categories to add, fewer is better. Let your 
    community tell you what categories you are lacking and then add it then. Less 
    is more. </p>
