How to Modify The Template

To modify the template’s elements, start by opening the template’s body layout.
Inside the Body Layout Editor, you can edit the design on the front end using the Divi Builder just like you would with a normal Divi page.
About the Template
This category page template has a few dynamic elements that will work automatically including:
- Category Page Post/Archive Title: As this template is assigned to all categories, this Text Module will automatically update to reflect the name of the category
- Post Slider: We use a Post Slider Module to show the first 3 posts that show up within the category
- Recent Posts Grid: A Blog Module showcases the 9 next posts within the current category
Here is a quick illustration that identifies the dynamic elements of the Tattoo Shop Category Page Template.
Updating the Template’s Dynamic Elements
Blog-Related Modules: Post Slider and Blog
Post Slider Included Categories
This template will display on all category pages for the site. As such, there are going to be one or more blog modules that are set to display posts for the current page. For this tattoo shop template, we have a Post Slider Module and a Blog Module. This is how the template displays the posts dynamically for each category page.
You can update the rest of the settings (like post count) to adjust the module elements and design. However, make sure to keep the option of Included Category to Current Category.
Post Offsets and the Blog Module
As we have more than one blog module in this template (The Post Slider Module and the Blog Module), the post offset option is used in conjunction with the previous blog module to preserve the order of dynamic posts by picking up where the previous blog module left off. For example, if the last blog module had a post count of 1, the next blog module will have a post offset of 1 to display posts starting at #2.
In our case, the Post Slider Module shows 3 posts. So, we set a Post Offset Number of 3 within our Blog Module. We also have a Post Count of 9 in our grid. Keep this in mind when making updates to blog modules’ post count and offsets.
Updating the Tattoo Shop Template’s Static Elements
Other content that isn’t going to change dynamically can receive updates as well. These include all modules displaying text, links, social media follow icons, etc. For our template, we have a section that serves as a call to action. Ensure that you update the text, buttons, and even photos within to match your brand.
