In Newspaper 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 Category Individual Settings section which contains a different option panel for each category you have on your website.


You can change:

  • the category template – pick one of the 8 category header styles
  • the category top post – Select one of the 22 beautiful grids to highlight your top post, or simply disable it
  • the category top posts styles – pick one of the 7 styles to display your grids
  • the article display view – you have 19 different modules available to display the articles on your category page
  • use sidebar (right or left) or just plain content and no sidebar
  • category tag color (available on individual settings)
  • background used on the category page: image or color
  • an option to hide the category tag on posts and category pages
