How category settings work

Newsmag allows you to transform the category pages into creative interfaces that guide the visitors to the desired content. On the top section you can use 6 category header templates and 7 different grids with 7 styles each.

Watch the Customizing Categories video guide:

In Newsmag you have 2 different types of options:

  • Global Categories settings – it applies the same options to all categories
  • Individual Category settings – you can set up options to a specific category that override the global category settings

To set up a category go to the Theme Panel > Categories. In the main Categories panel you will find a Category Global Settings and a ‘Per category’ Settings section which contains a different option panel for each category you have on your website.


You can change:

  • the category template – choose one of the 6 available category header templates
  • category pull-down filter – this setting controls the display of the category pull-down filter
  • category top post – Select one of the 7 beautiful grids to highlight your top post , or simply disable it
  • category top posts styles – pick one of the 7 styles to display your grids
  • article display view – you have 15 different modules available to display the articles on your category page
  • pagination style – set a pagination style for all categories, available options:
    • Normal pagination
    • Infinite loading
    • Infinite loading + Load more
  • custom sidebar and position – set a custom sidebar and its position: right, left or no sidebar

What you can change for each category:
