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 options panel for each category you have on your website.
