Template/Style of 'Category' pages

We just took over a website from a developer. We're not exactly sure how to fix one of his errors.

We want this page (and all other category pages): https://statmedcaresolutions.com/category/blog-contribution/

...to look like this page: https://statmedcaresolutions.com/stat-blog/

    Hey there SmartWebNinja,

    I hope you're doing really good today and thanks for asking us! :slight_smile:

    As I inspected these URLs I understand that (please do correct me if I'm wrong) https://statmedcaresolutions.com/stat-blog/ is the main posts page as set under Settings -> Reading -> Front page displays. In order to have the same results with the views of category listings, you should alter their template-in-use in order to match the template that the main blog page uses.

    Here you can find a detailed flow chart of the template hierarchy in WP themes https://wphierarchy.com/.
    Another approach is through a little plugin called Reveal Template that can help you spot the appropriate template files easily. :wink:

    By that, you can find and inspect the template files of your theme and act accordingly, meaning that you have to copy the logic and the markup from one to another in most of the cases.
    Either way, this depends a lot on how the theme you're using is built and will require some coding knowledge.

    Having said that, if you wish more help on this, please consider granting us with support access into your site in order to have a better look. You can find details (and instructions of how to do so) in https://premium.wpmudev.org/manuals/wpmu-dev-dashboard-enabling-staff-login/

    Looking forward to hear back from you! :slight_smile:

    Warm regards,
    Dimitris

    The issue (I believe) is that the site's original developer "built" the current blog page (/stat-blog/) with a plugin called ContentVisual Pro. So, with that regard, I don't believe that page is using a specific page template that can then be copied.

    I'll grant access so you can take a look.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
