Add tags and categories to your posts is an effective way of organizing content while optimizing search engine results for your website.
Elementor is an intuitive page builder for WordPress that makes designing and editing pages effortless. With over 90 content elements/modules to add, Elementor makes building the perfect page easy!
1. Go to Appearance
Category and archive pages such as tags are essential components of any WordPress website, providing visitors with easy access to related content while helping search engines index it for search. They’re also key in SEO terms – especially their permalinks – making customization essential. It is therefore imperative that WordPress offers easy ways of making this happen.
As there are multiple methods available to you for doing this without needing advanced PHP knowledge, the first step should be visiting Appearance > Menus to add categories you would like included in your WordPress navigation menus and then arrange them by dragging up or down to customize their order as you see fit.
Next, create a category page template. In the AE Category Template panel, set these parameters:
Click “Edit with Elementor” and begin creating your page content with Elementor. Save often and prior to clicking the green publish button twice so that if something goes wrong you can always revert back to an earlier version if necessary; saving frequently also protects changes from accidentally being deleted and prevents unnecessary rewrites of URLs in category pages, thus maintaining SEO’s permalink structure integrity.
2. Go to Widgets
Elementor’s drag-and-drop page editing interface makes creating websites simple. As you work, the live version of your page appears before your eyes allowing a real time editing experience that allows for customization of alignments, margin and padding values as well as any additional settings or customization.
Elementor allows you to easily customize its default fonts and colors, giving you more ways to fit them in with your brand or theme. This feature ensures that all pages of your website will look uniform upon completion.
Elementor offers more than templates – it also has a library of blocks you can add to your page, like pricing tables, testimonial carousels and “meet the team” layouts – for making websites more interactive and engaging for visitors. Adding these elements can add depth to any section of your website by making it more interactive and engaging for them.
Assembling these blocks can take only minutes. Once done, they can be easily moved around using the blue handle, with individual widgets having individual handles to change content or unlink global widgets that retain their configuration and content.
3. Go to Posts
If your category page looks outdated, Elementor provides an excellent way to easily make edits. Compatible with any WordPress theme and featuring what-you-see editing capability, this front-end page builder allows for intuitive ‘what you see is what you get’ editing experience. With its library of templates or customizable creation tools available for use – as well as features such as inline text editing, real-time previews and drag-and-drop widgets – Elementor makes creating beautiful page designs simple!
Utilising the page builder is straightforward. It features an inbuilt search bar to quickly find templates. Furthermore, you can set specific post types you’d like to work with by visiting its settings panel and simply selecting those from which you wish to work before clicking Save.
Page builder also allows you to easily create custom category pages. Simply choose from one of the library templates and specify which category it applies to, before customizing by adding or removing sections and columns, special-purpose elements such as countdowns, team, creative elements and form styling elements, widgets for social media links etc. Finally save and publish it; when visitors come back to your site they’ll be directed back to posts in that particular category page!
4. Go to Categories
Organising your blog’s posts by category makes it easier for readers to locate specific articles. Furthermore, search engines use categories as a way of indexing your content more quickly. To alter a list on a certain page simply visit its settings and click Edit Category List.
WordPress Elementor makes creating and editing category pages simple, whether they feature products, services or news updates. With various templated page builders to choose from, Elementor lets you design the perfect category page with all of your unique design features and editable text boxes – and more importantly – without losing visitors due to an outdated look and feel.
Each template comes equipped with sections, columns, and widgets. A section divides your page into horizontal rows; each row may then contain one or more columns that hold content elements; you can easily rearrange their placement via drag-and-drop. Widgets contain additional features you can add to your page such as text boxes, images, links or more – you’re in control.
Another feature that makes WordPress Elementor especially helpful when creating custom category pages is the ability to build forms that enable visitors to sign up or make donations, expanding your audience in this way. Elementor offers shortcode widgets so you can incorporate this form content directly into your design before previewing its appearance on the front end. Furthermore, other plugins’ shortcodes can be embedded directly into Elementor pages for quick use on site.
