Magazine Layout -- Category Pages/Archive Pages

Recommended Posts

bigbadwalla

Hello, I have two, hopefully quick questions. In short, I'm interested in using the magazine layout for my category pages. I've activated the magazine layout on my front page and it looks fantastic, however when I click into a category page the magazine layout disappears and some sort of two column layout remains (the full width posts are gone). I would like to retain the magazine layout (full width posts -and- the two column layout -- example: 220122jly.jpg ) throughout the entire site. Now, this is where my second question comes in... I want to retain the magazine layout for everything on my site (which really just entails the home page, category pages, and archive pages), but I would like the blog layout (excerpts that are full width) for the search results. (my second question isn't as critical as my first) I've desperately looked for solutions to these problems with little to no luck. I found similar posts to mine, however with my lack of programming ability I wasn't able to understand them. Basically, all I know is that I have to modify something in "the loop." If I could have any help with what code I need to place and where that would be wonderful. Thanks in advance, (similar posts to mine) http://www.pagelines.com/forum/discussion/11347/full-width-posts-on-a-category-page/p1 http://www.pagelines.com/forum/discussion/9216/full-width-posts-in-categoryarchive-pages-with-magazine-layout/p1

The loop file that is being referred to is the [b]template.postloop.php[/b] file. Do you have PlatformBase (the child theme)?

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Thanks for the response, Yes, I have the PlatformBase child theme and I copied the template.postloop.php to that folder. I'm not completely sure what I need to change inside the file in order to enable the magazine layout for category/archive pages.
