Blog Listing Category Page

Say you have a  website with a blog, but your blog has many categories, and you would like a separate page per category.
No problem.  There are three solutions :
1 - Configure your page to display a category-specific listing of your blog posts.

The disadvantage of this technique is that if you want the same listing design on every page, you'll have to replicate it "n" times ("n" being the amount of categories)...

2 - Modify the blog-listing category's page in the Page Editor



To edit a category's path, you can modify the meta-url in your blog dashboard > categories.



The page's path will be https://yourwebsite.com/categories/category

If your category is the child or subchild of a category, the path will be appended as follows:

https://yourwebsite.com/categories/parentCategory/childCategory/subChildcategory

This path will display the blog-listing category page you edited in the pagebuilder.

3 - Configure your page to display a category-specific listing of your blog posts based on the category found in the URL.


Use the URL parameter to switch between the different categories.
The URL parameter is "bcat". Ex: https://myblog.com/listing.html?bcat=5 will display the page listing, and the blog listing inside will display the fifth category.

You can combine it with URL rewriting for transparent category binding. For more information check out this article : URL Rewriting
