Categorised list of articles based on metadata tags

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://callumelsdon.com/

Hi all,

Now I'm getting more traffic to my travel blog I'm trying to improve the organisation of the website using article metadata categorisation.

I like the way in which a 'blog' page in Squarespace formats and lays out individual posts - example: https://callumelsdon.com/articles . The primary positive to this is that there is no limit to the number of articles I can show with the articles flowing over into other pages to view. 

I am trying to replicate this look and feel to create pages that display all articles on a specific topic e.g.:

The issue is that until now I have used a Summary Block to do these category pages but I'm now reaching close to reaching the maximum numbers of articles that can be displayed (30).

Is there a way I can create something that is similar to the blog page type but without setting up a separate blog for every category? 

All I want to do is for:

  • The main blog to feed through to a new page
  • Define the articles that will appear based on metadata
  • Only the articles with the correct metadata tags appear to readers of the site.
  • Have an 'unlimited' number of articles (not limited to just 1 page of 30 articles). 

I hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

The best way is use Summary Block.

You can use Lazy Summary plugin to remove 30 posts limit.
