Category Archive Page

Category Archive Pages display the articles and sub-categories within a specific Knowledge Base category. Customize the page’s appearance and elements using our Settings UI, or create your own custom archive page template for more control.

To learn more about the purpose of Category Archive Pages and how WordPress handles them, please read this article here.

In this step, you have the choice between using the Knowledge Base Template or the Current Theme Template:

  • No Blog Sidebar

Current Theme Template

Structure controlled by theme
  • Style design controlled by theme
  • All output elements controlled by theme

Build your own Category Archive Page template (for advanced users). Find instructions in this article: Advanced Customization of Category Archive Pages

Note: The number of listed articles per page is controlled by either your WordPress settings or your theme settings.

Control the number of articles displayed on Category Archive pages by adjusting your WordPress Reading settings or your theme settings.

a) If you chose to use your current theme template, adjust its settings in your theme configuration.

b) For the Knowledge Base Template, configure your archive page using the Settings UI within Echo Knowledge Base:

Go to admin > knowledge base > configuration > settings page and configure the Category Archive page elements.
