    Hey guys, I know my first post was a little all over the place, mostly because I figured out my issue midpost.

    So a couple questions here:

    – how do I change the look of how the stories present themselves in Post Grid?
    This is how it looks now: https://mvcsportstoday.com/schools/chelmsford/

    But I want the headline of the story to be clickable. I’d like to get rid of the read more button, but I just don’t see the option to change it anywhere.

    I’d like to have the option to change the page to look more like my news page
    https://mvcsportstoday.com/category/news/

    But I can’t find or am missing what this template is, I’d just like a simpler, more compact look to the stories.

    Thanks in advance –
    Tim

    Hey,

    If you want to get a more similar look to news page, you could just use the category archive page – this one:
    https://mvcsportstoday.com/category/schools/chelmsford/

    Is this what you are looking to achieve?

    Yes, where do I find these pages to edit and duplicate in WP?

    THE LAG TIME BETWEEN RESPONSES IN THE INTERNET AGE IS COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE.

    Hey,

    These pages are a part of every wordpress blog. See the attached screenshot. If you click on any of the blue tag labels, it will take you to according category archive. Sorry about the delay – responses to question can be expected to take 2-3 days.

    How do I edit this page in WordPress? That’s what I’m asking. I don’t see it anywhere when I go into the admin and I want to change the look and feel of these pages. I want to add logos and such. As of now, if you look at my Schools dropdown, they are separate newly created pages but I want all the schools pages to look more like what you screenshot’ed.

    I understand its a 2-3 day reply, but I’m very much hoping to get an answer ASAP because I need to get this site cleaned up and ready for official launch.

    Thanks –
    Tim

    And most importantly, if these archive pages that are created automatically, is there a way to replicate that article layout? Is there already an element I’m missing in editor?

    Thanks –

    So the WordPress archive pages (just like main blog roll, search results etc) can not be edited with WP Bakery or other page builder tools since they are a deeply ingrained part of core wordpress. What you can do is use theme settings to adjust the style of post item, edit sidebar widgets and enable/disable featured posts there. This is basically what you see here in demo page:
    http://planetshine.net/demo/goliath-news/blog/
    or
    http://planetshine.net/demo/goliath-news/blog/?blog_style=4

    I’m just not seeing how that translates into building a page. I feel like we’re talking two different languages here.

    I am looking for step-by-step directions on how to replicate the look you’re showing me on the goliath news blog page. I want that to be a standard look on most of my individual sport and school pages. But when I go into the blog post from the demo, I’m not seeing any content in it of which to replicate.

    I simply don’t see how to replicate that look, with the compact posts, on a page.

    This is what my standard page looks like now:

    Andover Golden Warriors

    But I want it to look like the goliath-news/blog page you referenced, with that compact look to each article with the “READ MORE” in text instead of as a button, with articles/posts listed one after another instead of in a three-wide grid. I am simply not seeing what element to choose when creating a page or how to replicate that look.

    Can you give me step-by-step directions on how to build out that page from scratch to make it happen?

    Hey,

    Is this not be page layout you wish to achieve?
    https://mvcsportstoday.com/category/schools/chelmsford/

    This page you linked was built with wp bakery page builder. This is not what you should be doing. Blog pages do not need to be built at all – they are already there by default in all wordpress sites. Just need to open the link.

    Which of the blog styles exactly from demo do you want?
    1) http://planetshine.net/demo/goliath-news/blog/?blog_style=1
    2) http://planetshine.net/demo/goliath-news/blog/?blog_style=2
    3) http://planetshine.net/demo/goliath-news/blog/?blog_style=3

    If you give me access to your sites backend?

    We would like it to look like blog style 1 but would like to have ability to edit the page (which you have said we can’t do). Is this “Latest news” look an element possibility in creating WP pages that aren’t blogs? If it’s not currently, could you guys create it as a standalone element? I’d like that latest news look in creating pages but I want to be able to add other elements to the page, like standings for sports teams and other manually created tables.

    How would I give you backend site access? I’m all for that if we can get this issue resolved!

    Thanks –
    Tim

    I need to have a page for every school and every sport, so I need to replicate this instead of it just being one blog page on the site.

    Ok, got it. It’s no possible to combine the blog category archive pages (like this one: https://mvcsportstoday.com/category/schools/chelmsford/) with custom stuff without actually coding this as a brand new feature or finding a plugin that helps with this. I have never tested this, but it looks like this plugin might be useful:

    How to Easily Create Custom Category Pages in WordPress

    Probably will require you to adjust styling etc. for everything to look nice.
