So I’m using your awesome theme to build another site and I have a question regarding adding banners to category pages.
As you can see from the link below, this site has four dynamic pages which will act as listings for Workshops, News and Events. I thought it would be nice to create a title banner for each of the pages to save them from otherwise being text heavy, however as I’m not familiar with php coding, any advise on how to do this would be appreciated.
We could use a child theme and add custom widget areas. A possibly easier idea is as follows:
1. Go to Pages and create a page for each of your categories, create a page called Workshops etc.
2. On each page click on the Page Builder tab and insert a Post Loop widget. Select the Blog loop or your chosen loop template.
3. In the query builder go to the Taxonomies field and start typing the name of the category to be displayed, it will appear in an autoselect list.
Once this is done you’ll be free to insert additional content above the post loop and also choose the page template.
Thanks for your reply!
The carousel idea would be the easiest option, however I would prefer for the pages to look more like a blog archive, with brief excerpts from each post. A bit like I’ve done here – http://lucyjaneatkinson.com/work/
How would I go about adding a custom widget area? I am already working on a child theme of Ultra.
Thanks for checking this out. My idea was to use the Post Loop (PB) widget which would give you the option to use the Blog template. It sounds like you might have inserted the Post Carousel widget which is similar but only has the single carousel template.
