Page-Specific Masthead

Recommended Posts


I'm hoping to create multiple blog pages where each one only shows posts from a specific category.


For example:

  • Page 1: site.com/category/food
  • Page 2: site.com/category/animals
  • Page 3: site.com/category/mineral

Currently, when I try to place a masthead section with a unique title at the top of one of these pages, the same masthead section appears on all of them. I have "unlinked" the page from any sort of template, and I have tried to create a unique templates for each. In all instances, the changes I make on one appears on all the other (except for the posts that are being displayed).


Is it possible to do what I'm trying to accomplish? Any help is appreciated.

Unfortunately, you're unable to have individual templates for category pages. The only way to do this would be to use a hook via your child themes or use the NextBox section using the following function - http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/single_cat_title


You will not be able to place the Masthead via a function, but you can copy the HTML used for the Masthead section and replace the <h1>...</h1> with the cat title function.

This has been added to our issue tracker as a feature enhancement.

Thank you for your help, Danny.


When I paste the function into a TextBox section, it does not seem to be returning any values. My process was:

  1. Insert a TextBox section
  2. Past the following function into the TextBox: 
    <?php single_cat_title('Explore Topic '); ?>

Am I missing any steps?

      Hi, even though I just got a SSL certificate, I can't get the green padlock to appear due to the following error:
      :A file with an insecure url of "http://yemoonyah.com/wp-content/plugins/pl-section-boxes/check.svg" was loaded via the javascript file: https://yemoonyah.com/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.12.4 on line 3. The insecure URL may not be directly contained in the script file and may exist elsewhere."
      I figured if I delete and re-install the plugin it might fix the problem but will my boxes on the website still be there? Or do I have to redesign everything all over again if I delete the plugin and then re-install it?
