Changing the way a blog-category-page is shown

Hello there,

I already mentioned how much I do like shapely. I am still working on a development site and I guess it really looks great. Also the functionality is just what you want!

Now I have a question:

I want to have a link pointing to a blog category. I am happy with the display of the articles in this category in the grid. But I really would want:

the name of the category as the title of the page
the description of the category on top (right after the name of the category)
maybe a divider to the grid like </hr> or so.

If the name and the description would be available and each of them would have a class connected I could do the formatting just as I wish. Is there any way to solve that?

Thank you for getting back to me, best regards!


Hi Martin,

Thank you so much for your kind words about our theme :slight_smile:

For now the category is displaying like this: You want the category description here? See the screenshot:

Let us know,


Dear Laranz,

yes, that is what I would like to achieve. It would be nice if it would be in the white part (not in the grey) but both would work …

Thank you for getting back! Best regards!

Hi again,

I guess I found a way t accomplish what I needed. I just solved be adding a plugin that would list posts of a certain category using a shortcake. So now I can ad any category of posts to a page a format the page to my liking!
