I’ve been trying so many different things today. I tried Elementor, Elementor Pro, a bunch of different plugins, and finally resorting to a simple custom archive view.
I’m really stuck though.
I’m trying to replicate a view look like, https://www.buzzfeed.com/shopping for one of my categories.
Any suggestions how I would approach laying out my content in such a way for a specific category?February 17, 2020 at 2:15 pm #1168532LeoStaffCustomer SupportFebruary 17, 2020 at 2:19 pm #1168534Jon

What exactly are you trying to achieve from that layout? The featured post with the columns below? The sidebar?

Looking to achieve the specific style of ..
sub-categories of the archive in view, as links above, All, Beauty, Deals, Home, etc.

below, left image, title, description, author, minutes ago
with right sidebar (nothing specific)February 18, 2020 at 8:09 am #1169309TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
It will likely take some custom CSS.
To start, set up your blog to have a featured post in Customize > Layout > Blog.
Then set the featured image to align left.
Once you do that, feel free to link me to the page and I’ll help with some of the CSS 🙂February 18, 2020 at 8:38 am #1169338Jon
As this is our production site, I can’t make those changes live until I have the definitive layout done. I have a working copy locally on my machine of this site.
Is there any way to provide some guidance based on what is already in production so I can work on it locally?February 18, 2020 at 7:45 pm #1169847TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Is it possible to set up a quick staging server? It will make it much easier to bust out the necessary CSS if I’m able to see your exact setup – much less guessing.
Let me know 🙂
