Adding PostNav to Category Pages

Recommended Posts

I have been able to add PostNav to individual Post pages, but when I attempt to add it to the bottom of a Category or Tag page, I'm unable. The PostNav icon is greyed out, so I'm assuming that it's not allowed. I just can't figure out why it would not be allowed.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

 

The PostNav is to navigate between posts and is only available when viewing a single post, you can not add the section to any other location. As it wouldn't be doing anything.

Thanks, Danny. So how would you suggest adding a 'More Articles' in a category section? For example, on this category page, there are numerous older posts that are not displaying beyond the WP set number of listed posts:

You will want to add the Pagination Section to your Archive and Category page. This will add a < Previous and Next > button to your category/archive pages. If you wish to have numbers instead of <Previous and Next> then install the WP Navi plugin. This will replace the Previous/Next with numbers.

      Hi,
      Previous webmaster has made short codes assigned to certain categories. For example: [pl_section section="loops" id="003"]  displays all the Job posts for tech. 
      But where can I assign a short code for a certain category? I can't find where to add the loop ID for the category.
       
      Thank you

      I've created a new post category "Success stories" with Custom Post type UI. (in order to have a different layout for a different post category - blog post one layout, success stories another layout).
      New category "success stories" are "detached" from all the other posts, so they have a different layout, but the problem is that all of the success stories are also having the same exact content.
      So whenever I edit content (e.g. change body text) on one of success story posts, it also changes the content (body text) for all other Success story category posts. 
       
      Question: Is there a way to retain this separate category with it's own layout, and have a different content for each individual post? I'm using Pagelins templates. 
       Thanks in advance.

      Hi,
      Is is possible to have different layouts for different Post categories? We have Blog posts, News posts and Case studies that all are posts, but is it possible to differentiate their layouts?
      So far when I change a post layout it affects all Post type pages. Could it be done somehow with creating a separate template? 
      Examples below

      Hello
      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.

      Hi there,
       
      Having difficulty editing something on a site I'm working on.  In previous Pagelines versions, clicking a post category allowed one to see all of the posts in that category.  In the postloop for DMS, it seems I can only show max ten.  I'd like for any category (except the main blog page, which should remain in magazine mode with 10 max) to show its maximum content - any explanation on how I can do that?
       
      Thanks very much.
