If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
I’d like to customize my category pages by adding a slider on top like in here :
The problem is theses pages that depend from my blog are “categories” that I have added to the menu. You can see it here : http://www.calliframe.com/ and on blog you’ll have a mega menu with all the categories I have.
So I am wondering if I can actually create a special “customization” for each category knowing they are not pages so I don’t have access to the page builder.
The idea is to create a slider quite thin and to add the title and a catch sentence that would introduce each of the categories of my blog.
So my question is:
Can I customize a “category page”? Is there a way to do that?
Or do I have to create a page for each category , Insert a slider module, customize it, then insert a blog module and select which category I want to display and then replace the categories in my menu by those pages I have created.
The second route of creating a custom page is your only option to do it through the WordPress backend. Otherwise you would need to create custom php files to load specific layouts for each category. That is actually the only option I know of to truely customize the category archive templates that a user would pull up when clicking a category name.
