We’ve extended the archive/category pages to be able to accommodate a few more fields: a description, a large background image, an optional sidebar, and 4 choices of layout.
Description – We do show this, 2-3 sentences is good.
Category Header Image – Background image that will span the full width so we recommend at least 1700px wide to 2000px wide by whatever height you feel appropriate.
Sidebar Display – Show or hide the sidebar. You can set the default under Appearance > Customize > Cortex Theme Option.
Posts Layout (Click the links for examples in our demos with sidebars enabled and disabled in some)
This means when users click on categories on any of the blog/post layouts they’ll be taken to landing pages like these. If you’d like to customize these further you can always use the Page Builder layout templates for more options.
