A number of the Pretty Darn Cute Design Themes feature a Category Grid Archive; this archive displays categories as thumbnails, with a post title (rather than the blog archive layout). Make sure that you have added a featured image to each post which you assign to a category.
If you have lots of posts without a featured image, and prefer not to go back through them, you can use the
Default Image plugin to assign an image to those posts without a featured image.
Examples of PDC themes with a Category Grid Archive:
Category Archive Headline
- To display text in the gray box, Navigate to: Posts > Categories > Select your desired Category > Edit
- Add your desired Category Name and Category Description.
- The drop-down will automatically display if you have any “child” categories.
