Genesis Expose Category Template Matching Homepage

When I was checking out Expose Child Theme at StudioPress, I was slightly disappointed that when I clicked on a category that it didn’t resemble the homepage in any way. Personally, I would love to see an option in Theme Settings that asked whether I wanted to have my category archive pages to reflect the homepage or a normal category archive page as they have now. While I have taken the home template and dubbed it into a category template, more things can easily be added. If you want to download the file: Expose Category Template (241).

  1. I don’t see the link to download the file. I am looking for a way to make chosen category pages in the Lifestyle theme have a similar layout to the home page. Actually, I want the category page to serve as an index/home page for those categories. I have been going back and forth on figuring this out for hours! I think what you mentioned in this post is what I am looking for.

  2. Oh my god… I’m almost in tears man. I have been trying to hack away at this problem for hours! thank you very much. Gonna have a beer in your honor.

  3. Travis HELP!
