I apologize if this is a simple question but I'm entirely new to the website-building process. I have no prior experience. That being said, if the answer requires complicated HTML or CSS, then it won't be of any help to me since I have no knowledge in those areas.

Anyway, my question is just as the title suggests. Categories have the posts listed but the category is blank because I have no way of editing it like you can with a page where in a page, you can add media, text, etc. However, with a page the posts don't show up. So is there an effective way of either, being able to edit the category menu like you can with a page or creating pages for the categories and then adding the posts afterwards? I have Beaver Builder, so I can perhaps use the modules for each post and add it at the end of the page? I'm sorry if the question isn't clear.

  • This is more of a Beaver Builder post than WordPress post, so you better ask it in the Beaver Builder Reddit Page. A short answer is: if you also have Beaver Themer, then you may create a BB template and use that template for any Category page. Without Beaver Themer, it's still possible by using some WordPress category editor plugin or by using custom rewrite CODE. – Fayaz Jun 15 '18 at 18:49

With Beaver Builder, I'd just add another plugin called "Display Posts Shortcode" that will insert your category wherever you'd like. Maybe the following will help:

  1. Download the plugin "Display Posts Shortcode" here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/display-posts-shortcode/
  2. Insert the following text on the page where you want display the posts in your category: [display-posts category="categoryname"]
  3. You can choose to show an excerpt of the post, or the full post with featured image by editing the parameters. More information on the parameters can be found here: https://github.com/billerickson/display-posts-shortcode/blob/master/README.md#parameters

Any edits to the styling of the posts can be made directly in your CSS editor.
