How To Display Title on Category Page

Recommended Posts

How do I get the Category Name to display as a title on a category page? ex/ to have Books by TLC show as h1 title on http://teralynn.com/books/ I've found a code suggestion: <?php if ( is_category() ) { ?>

<?php single_cat_title(''); ?>

<?php } ?> But I'm more comfortable with HTML and CSS than PHP and I'm not sure where to place the code. Is there an easier way to do that? If not, in what file do I place the code and where? Thank you! Tera

Place it inside "functions.php". It is located in "Platforbase" folder. (I assume you have activated "Platforbase" not "PlatformPro" since that is the way you customize your theme.)

Thank you! But when I tried to paste that line of code into the "functions.php" file my site won't display and I get a php error. Is there something wrong with the code? Or somewhere specific I should place it in the file?

Most probably you have it on the wrong place or missed a letter or part of the code. Remove The code you placed thereand reload your site to make sure it works. Then try to find a line in "functions.php" that says "// ADDING NEW TEMPLATES //". Place the following lines of codes right before that: /* Adding new category titles. The default category title is hidden using CSS (.current_posts_info). */ add_action('pagelines_inside_top_theloop','cat_title'); function cat_title(){?> <?php if (is_category()): ? >

<?php echo single_cat_title(); ?>

<?php endif; }

Hello,

I found the place to paste the code, but I get an error too. Is the code right?

 

/* Adding new category titles. The default category title is hidden using CSS (.current_posts_info). */ add_action('pagelines_inside_top_theloop','cat_title'); function cat_title(){?>

title(); ?>

Hello xcel7

 

Please could you create a new topic with all the information and we will take a look for you. 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

Hi,

 

This topic is over two years old and the solution provided above, will most likely not work for PageLines Framework or DMS. Therefore, can you please create a new topic.
