How to get the link (URL) for a category

In this tutorial, we'll show you how to get the link for a category page. This is particularly useful if your theme uses Genesis Featured Page Advanced widgets and you'd like to link your widget(s) to a category. This would also be useful if you'd like to link a button to a category page.

  1. Go to Posts > Categories.
  2. Hover your cursor over the category you'd like to grab the link for.
  3. Click View.
  4. The category page will open in your browser. In the address bar, select and copy the complete link.
  5. Paste the link wherever you need.
