Page Title section of the Customiser

The Page Title section offers you the necessary options that are needed to configure the hero section of your category archive pages. It offers two great design choices, which will help you get the layout just right.

Type 1 look
Type 2 look

Type 1 is a classic look, that goes great when displaying relevant information about your categories, while Type 2 has a full bleed layout that goes great with the transparent header.

Each design has a few layers of information that can be controlled from the Elements section.

  • Title – Shows the title of your category page.
  • Excerpt – Shows the description excerpt that you have set for the category page.
  • Breadcrumbs – Our quick navigation system is ready for duty.
