Custom Category Pages

All of our (updated) Simple WordPress themes include custom category pages. Here are examples of the custom category pages in some of our themes:

How to create custom category pages

The custom category pages are automatically set up for each category 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.

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.

Changing the category image size
