Category Parent
Use this drop-down if you want to make this Category a sub-Category; you will select the sub-Category’s Parent here. For example, you may have a Category called “Web Design” but want to add further clarification about the subject of a particular “Web Tutorials” post. You could add “WordPress Tutorials” and “CSS Tutorials” as sub-Categories to the “Web Design” Category; “Web Tutorials” would be the Parent of these two new sub-Categories.

Add Category
The most important part of the Add New Category box. Once you’ve entered in all the information about your new Category, use this button to save it.
