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.
I am trying to have my post show up on more than the static page that is defined in >settings>reading.
I would very much like the post to able to be displayed on 2 other pages "like a second and third recent posts that is displayed like a blog.
Any help would be great.
I am somewhat familiar with how coding works but not advanced enough to write the code I think I need for this.
is there an easier way.

I'm struggling to get the WP Content / Loop to display at this site.
There are posts on the site which I can display using a Widget Shortcode workaround but as you can see here it's not as pretty. http://northernreivers.org/field-guide/
Tried disabling all the plugins as well and got the same result.
Hoping to be told I'm an idiot and I've just missed something.
Thanks in advance
UPDATE: I just downloaded DMS 2.1.5 and did an install as previously I had upgraded. Unfortunately still getting the same results.
I just updated the DMS theme.Following the update, I am no longer able to configure the List Mode layout to display a wide full-column image above the post text. Instead only the thumbnail image view is available.
Pro Plugin: 1.5
