Custom Category Pages
Several of our Premium WordPress themes include custom category pages. Here are examples of the custom category pages in some of our themes:
How to set up custom category pages like the demo
It's super easy! Custom category page (as shown in the demo) are automatically set up for any categories you create, along with any existing categories already on your site.
To create a new category, go to your WordPress dashboard > Posts > Categories. Further instructions for how to create/use categories can be found here.
When you create a new category, that category's page will automatically be formatted like the demo. All of your existing categories will also be automatically formatted like the demo after you install the theme.

Troubleshooting & Tips
If your images are displaying at the wrong size
If the images on your category pages are displaying at "inconsistent" sizes, you'll need to regenerate your thumbnails.
If some of your images are still not displaying correctly after regenerating your thumbnails, those images likely not large enough to be resized – see this article.
