You need to go to http://:/mediawiki/index.php/MediaWiki:Sidebar and edit (or create if is the first time) this page. You can add:

  • Category:Top_level|Browser categories

Then when you create a category that you want to be shown in the Top_level page you need to add [[Category:Top_level]] in the category page.

The links below include more information about how to modify the sidebar menu and how to create categories:
