All theme versions prior to 4.0.8 displayed categories as full-width on mobile. This lead to needing to scroll excessively to browse through a category.
In version 4.0.8, we updated the default category page layout to display only the featured image and the post title, per modern best practices. This makes category pages much easier to browse, leading your visitors more easily to the recipe page they’re actually looking for.
We no longer recommend displaying post-meta (author, date published, tags/categories) as this doesn’t provide any value to the reader on category pages. We also don’t recommend displaying the post-content, as this makes the page too visually distracting to navigate through.
This applies to:
- Foodie Pro
- Brunch Pro
- Cook’d Pro
- Cravings Pro
- Seasoned Pro
Note: This applies to archives – which includes search, categories, tags and date/author archives. We no longer use the term “archive” because it’s technical and unnecessary. Category pages are the only important type of archive. For more information, see: food blog site structure.
