How it Works

Divi Hacks will first look for a page with the slug archive_category_### (### = slug of the category). If the page is not found for that category, the custom category archive page you set in the Theme Customizer will be displayed instead.

How to Set it Up

1. Create a new page (or just duplicate the default category page you created) and give it the slug archive_category_###, replacing ### with the SLUG of the category.
2. Using the page builder, add the shortcode [dh-archive] where you want the posts to appear on that page, using the same attributes in the table above, and any of the other shortcodes available on custom category archives.

Notes

When you’re setting up your categories, make sure the category slugs do NOT contain underscores (_).
