Hi, Looking to modify the category page for a specific category, I read that I need to create another page. In simple themes, you should duplicate and rename categories.php but using PlatformPro I'm not sure what file I have to copy and edit to customize. I'm also using Base, so I understand that I should add the new file to the Base folder? What else I will have to do? thank you very much!

Hi, You could simply create a page for your category and then install a plugin called Special Recent Posts. Special Recent Posts, provides you with a shortcode from the settings you choose. Add this shortcode to your newly create page for you category and see how that works.

Thanks Danny, I would prefer not to do so, but It's an option that helps. Thank you very much!

The solution Danny provided is the easiest possible solution since there is no setting/option immediately available for this.
