What are categories?

Categories are used to group similar content together on your site. Categorizing your content allows you to easily display content of the same category anywhere on your site.

For example, if you had a “News” category with multiple items categorized as “News”, you could pull in that entire category and present it on any page you wish.


Creating a new category

  1. On the dashboard, hover over the type of content you’d like to add a category for and click on Categories.
  2. Fill out the appropriate information on the next page. You are required to give the category a Name and a Slug. Parent Category and Description are optional.
  3. Once you’ve filled out the information, click Add New Category
