Empty Category Page / Sidebar in Archive Page

5 posts in this topic

Hi there,


in one project i'm working on, the category sites are empty. I've built a childtheme, based on the "basetheme". How could i manage it, that the post are displayed by clicking on the category links in the sidebar and is it possible to show the the sidebar with the archives and categorys at the singlepost / category-page / archiv-page?


Kind Regards



Website URL:
Framework Version: 2.1.1

WordPress Version: 3.5.1

Your Category page is empty because you have most likely removed the Content Section on Page Template > Category Template or PostLoop on Content Area > Category Template.


The Sidebar issue on your Archive Template is most likely caused by your settings on PageLines > Page Options > Archive, check your hide/show sections etc...

Hey Danny,


thanks for your answer. But the content sections is not removed, as you can see on the attached file.


For getting the archive and category menu shown in the sidebar i need to hide on of the sidebar on every single page. That is a bit unfunctional but should do it.




attachement doens't show up:

    • Page Content Disappeared when Logged In
      By flourishdesignstudio+
      I am having a unique problem in which our website is appearing correctly when I am logged out of DMS but when I am logged in and view the front of the site the main content area disappears. The page content still exists in the WP editor in the backend but from the front everything disappears. This happens on almost all the main pages but not on every single one which made me think it was a template problem but this is happening across several templates, not just a single one. Any thoughts on what might be causing this?
      I am attaching screenshots of the same page when I am logged out versus when I am logged in. Thanks so much in advance for the help!

    • Custom design for different category pages
      By mzhafzah
      I am using DMS 2 theme and I want to create a 2 different links on my website; each link should take you to a different blog post category. Although the process is easy, yet I can not figure out how to give each category page a unique design of its own; Any change I make on any page is applied to the other (I'm aware of the universal elements like the header and footer and I a am not talking about these.)
      Since I am new to wordpress in general, I am not sure if my description is sufficient; apologies if it is not.
    • Multiple Archive Templates?
      By jennajonesdesign
      Is it possible to have multiple archive templates? Sometimes I don't like to have all of my posts grouped together. On the current site I am working on we have a "Job Openings" section completely separate from a "News and Events" section. All I am trying to do is add a different header to each section, but even when I save as separate templates they keep over-riding each other. I am unlocking first. 
      Is this just error on my part, or is it not currently an option to have multiple archive templates?
      Let me know! Thanks!
    • How would I build this?
      By abuzzelli+
      How would I build a page like this so the content would be editable in wordpress?
      The page scrolls down and there are many sections. I'm not sure how to set up a pagelines template that can be used on many pages that would also be editable in either wordpress pages, posts or widgets. Any suggestions?
    • Scaling down h1-h6 in the template area
      By dgsarnow+
      Does anyone know how to scale down the h1-h6 tags within the template section?
      I want to keep the native sizes in the header, fixed bar, and footer sections.
