Category pages can be created with a little assistance of the web designer. To kick of the creation of a category page, create a page with the
layout set to category-page. Also add a
title that is set to the name of the category for which the page is created.
An example can be seen in the pages/categories/classic.md file:
--- layout: category-page title: classic ---
All other content in a category generation file is ignored.
Category Menu Item
To enable the creation of a category menu item set the
site.data.setup.generate-categories-menu parameter to yes. This will create a drop-down menu entry with the names of the categories for which pages were generated.
PS: The name of the categories menu item can be configured in
As an alternative to the menu a widget is available that can be included somewhere to have access to the category pages.
Widget or Menu
Using the categories menu is not possible when the drop-down menus are disabled (by setting
site.data.setup.drop-down-menu to no). In that case the widget is the only way to access the categories pages.
