I am currently working on a personal blog, which is made up of a variety of Parent and Child Categories. At present, both Parent and Child Category Pages are made up of just Blog Post Archives. Furthermore, the Parent Category Pages simply contains all the Blog Post excerpts that appear within their respective Child Categories.

As such, I am concerned with the issue of duplicate content. To remedy this, I would like to be able to add a Page Builder to the Category Edit page, so that I can easily create unique content and layouts. Just like how a Page Builder would work within a static page.

Is this possible and if so, would it be labour intensive in performing the relevant modifications?

  • possible, somewhat labour intensive. – Shazzad May 22 at 18:38
  • Would you say the benefits would justify the work required or to just simply use static pages, where a Page Builder is required? My concern, with this approach, would be related to how the URL structure would be semantically affected. – Craig May 22 at 21:31
  • Do you think Google got this this far while being bamboozled by blog posts that appear in multiple categories? Pretty much every blog on Earth has content organised that way and it's not a problem. Regardless, the answer to your question depends entirely on the page builder you're using. Some might even support it natively. You'd need to ask its developers. – Jacob Peattie May 23 at 6:27
  • @JacobPeattie It is not so much the fact that there will be Posts appearing in multiple Categories but developing the Category Pages as to ensure Parent and Child Categories offer something more than a unique Title & Description in its efforts to differentiate one from the other. Hence wondering if it would be possible to integrate a Page Builder into as a Category Page. – Craig May 23 at 17:10
