XF 1.4 Just migrated from myBB, need a couple of pointers :)

#1
Hello, I recently moved my forum over from myBB 1.6 and am experiencing a couple of teething problems. Forums are temporarily in http://www.youthdebates.org/community . This install is a WIP.

I'd like to get help with the following:

1. I have formatted username colours according to usergroup in the ACP. This doesn't seem to be working. Does it sometimes just take a while to take effect?

2. Categories are displaying 0 discussions, when in fact their child forums contain hundreds. How can I get the number of discussions held in a category's child forums to count towards the number for that category on the index?

3. When I click on the RSS icons, everything just breaks. What do? :p

4. How do I add/remove widgets in the sidebar?

As you can see, not overly confident in code or tech in general. Just a guy who hosts a small community. Thanks :)

1. User group styling applies immediately. Ensure the display styling priority is correct.
This may be of some help: https://xenforo.com/help/user-group-styling/

2. Are you using a third party style?
I seem to recall there being a bug with counts for categories with one particular style.

3. What breaks? More information or a link is required.

4. XenForo doesn't have widgets by default. Blocks can be added or removed by editing the template(s). If you are using a third party widget add-on, you will need to seek support in the add-on thread.

Thanks for the reply, much appreciated. I'll check out the user group display styling priorities, although I believe I'd already done this. If it turns out these are already correct, can I assume there's an issue with my theme? It is third party, but I paid quite a bit of money for it so I'll be on their backs for sure for some help!

The RSS feed appears fine to me.
You can ignore the message related to the style information, that's just a browser issue.
