    I have a custom category page for photo posts that shows a thumbnail for each gallery post. How would I override the number of posts displayed within that particular template? Is there a way to do that? Here’s my template code:

    <?php
    /**
     * The template for displaying Photo Category pages.
     *
     * Learn more: http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy
     *
     * @package GeneratePress
     */
     
    // No direct access, please
    if ( ! defined( 'ABSPATH' ) ) exit;
    
    get_header(); ?>
    
    	<section id="primary" <?php generate_content_class(); ?>>
    		<main id="main" <?php generate_main_class(); ?>>
    		<?php do_action('generate_before_main_content'); ?>
    		<?php if ( have_posts() ) : ?>
    			<?php do_action( 'generate_archive_title' ); ?>
                
                <div class="inside-article">
    
                <?php /* Start the Loop */ ?>
    			<?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    
                    <div class="post-thumbnail">
                        <p class="thumbnail-image"><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail( 'thumbnail' ); ?></a></p>
                        <p class="thumbnail-link"><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></p>
                    </div>
                
    			<?php endwhile; ?>
                </div>
    
    			<?php generate_content_nav( 'nav-below' ); ?>
    
    		<?php else : ?>
    
    			<?php get_template_part( 'no-results', 'archive' ); ?>
    
    		<?php endif; ?>
    		<?php do_action('generate_after_main_content'); ?>
    		</main><!-- #main -->
    	</section><!-- #primary -->
    
    <?php 
    do_action('generate_sidebars');
    get_footer();

    Unless someone has a better way of doing this, I was able to do this by changing this:
    <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>

    to this:
    <?php query_posts('showposts=20&cat=2'); while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>

    query_posts() works, but should be avoided if possible.

    You might be able to do this:

    add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'set_posts_per_page_for_towns_cpt' );
    function set_posts_per_page_for_towns_cpt( $query ) {
      if ( !is_admin() && $query->is_main_query() && is_category( 'towns' ) ) {
        $query->set( 'posts_per_page', '10' );
      }
    }

    You’ll need to change the is_category() conditional to suit your needs.
