Directory: no categories on the listings

I am working on MU/bp site, I am using WPMU Nelo Child 2.2.5 and activated directory plugin, the listings, signin and signup pages were created. I created categories added the short code, I expected to see the categories listed on the listings page with the number of entries in each category instead what is being displayed is the posts right away.

Also there is no add listing button/link. I tested some other themes, the add listing appeared in one or two of them but when I clicked on it there is no form on the page to make an entry
