I am working on a site that uses post categories to organize a large collection of cocktail recipes (such as 'Fall Cocktails', 'Winter Cocktails', 'Spring Cocktails', and 'Summer Cocktails'). I am trying to style the category pages so that a user will land on the Fall page and see the fall posts in a two-column setup. The Pagelines Content section has no real post display options to speak of so I am trying to work within the Loops section, which does produce the overall visual effect that we are hoping for. However, it means that I have to create a Loops section for every single category page and tell it to show the posts for that specific category (Fall posts on the Fall Category page, Spring posts on the Spring page, etc). We actually have about 25 cocktail categories so creating unique pages for each category isn't going to be very time effective for us - especially if we want to change a setting later and have to go to each page to do that.
So, my question is whether or not there is a way to control general category pages or if there are any other good post loop options that you recommend. This used to be much easier in the past versions of Pagelines and DMS so I just want to make sure I am not missing something within this new system.
Thanks so much for the help!
I just upgraded to the platform 5 and all my post lop content in static pages is not visible on the site, although it is selected in the page setup.

Hello, how do I show tags in WP-content-section... or what am I missing out?
Hi DMS team,
Please help out on how to add Post tags to the bottom of each post. Tried looking at the hooks tutorials but not sure what to do here.
Thanks a lot.
I'm having a problem with post formatting that I never encountered before PL5.
I keep losing my paragraph formatting. I've gone in manually 4 and 5 times...adding in the <p></p> tags, updating...then I go to the visual editor or the pagebuilder and when I go back..they're gone and so is the
formatting. In digging around I think it has to do with the wpautop filter. See this: https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wpautop
I'm in the process of converting pages from DMS to PL5 and something in PL5 seems to be interacting with the formatting. I'm also getting other strange formatting issues (random <i></i> with no text n between, etc.)
Frankly, I don't care if I need to manually add <p> or not... I just need the formatting to stick.
