Hi Tristan,

 

If the actual category posts are fine, and you just seek to add sections, such as Hero, Masthead, etc., you may do this via Dashboard > PageLines > Drag & Drop > Page Templates or Content Area (depending on whether these need to be full-width or with sidebars next to them).

 

For full width, click Page Templates then Category.  Add sections you want, like Hero, from Available Sections to Active Sections.

For sections with sidebars next to them, do the same thing under Content Area > Category

 

Because these are special pages, you can edit the content you want to add to them via Dashboard > PageLines > Page Options > Category Page > then select the section you added.  There, you can customize the section, adding whatever content format fits the section.

Unfortunately, no.

 

You would have to create static category pages and include the loop, set specific to that category on the static page.  You'd need a plugin like AnyLoops (a premium product in our Store) or Special Recent Posts through WP.org (very complicated setup) to do this.

      Hi Pagelines team and wider community,
      I am looking to develop a single post page for my blog. I have read over an old article on the subject, however the link provided on achieving this goal was giving me security warnings. Is there any way I can get round this?
      Secondly, I have had a root around the .zip file provided on my sites backup, however was unable to locate any file in there with the name of Single.php. Does this file exist in the Pagelines theme?
      By the way, this is the unsafe article: http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/create-a-custom-page-template/ (Click at your peril).

      Hello,
      We are working on a 2 languages site (https://liguecardioliga.be) with wpml, and lately the call of a category in the loops section (and all the sections requiring a category to select posts) doesn't work in the translated language. It worked well until recently so I wonder if it's because of a recent update (wordpress, wpml, pagelines, a plugin?). Anyone has the same problem? a solution?
      TIA

      Hey folks - I'm trying to get right of some 'dead space' at the bottom of the page in the Material Theme. (see attached) Those two gray lines have an "Edit" button in between them when the browser has a login cookie for the site. Here I created a screenshot from a browser session that doesn't have context for my main login, so you can see that the "Edit" indicator is gone, but the bars and the space it occupies still remains. Can someone help me isolate this so I can make it *completely* disappear? Thanks.
