Configure display of categories on front page

    Hello.

    The URL of my Web site is: http://www.frogans-directory.com/

    I am using Responsive directory theme.

    Some time ago, I configured my site to display the list of categories on the front page.

    Strangely, all sub-categories do not show. For instance, for the “Web sites” category, only 10 subcategories are shown, while there are 14.

    I cannot find where to fix this.

    Your help is welcome.

    Hello Jérôme,

    Hi Josh, yes, they have listings.

    BTW, I can’t remember WHERE I was able to configure my Website so that the front page displays the list of categories. Maybe there is a parameter for the maximum number of categories displayed.

    Do you know where this setting would be?

    Hi Josh,

    I am using Page Builder. My homepage is set up with the Theme default layout.

    When I try to edit the Home page content, all my display blocks are off.

    I have no idea where in the first place I set up my home page to display listing categories. And I have no idea why listing categories that do contain listings do not show up.

    I am totally lost.

    Hello Jérôme,
    The default homepage cannot be edited.You can only enable or disable block under Theme Setup >Page Setup >Home Page >Edit Page Content
    If using the page builder please go to Pages >Add new >Create your home page and use the page builder to add your content to the page.Then go to Settings >Reading >Static Page >Front Page = You homepage created suing the page Builder

    Hi Josh,

    Makes sense.

    But Page Builder does not load. When I create a new page, WordPress shows me this error message:

    “Failed to load content css: http://www.frogans-directory.com/wp-content/plugins/wlt_builder/third_party/bootstrap/css/bootstrap.min.css

    I tried to desactivate the plugin, then reactivate it; then I deleted the plugin and re-uploaded it, to no uvail.

    I am using the latest version of WordPress, 4.8.3.

    What can I do?

    Jerome

    Hi Josh,

    My ticket was solved.

    Getting back to my original issue, I followed your advice and could create a page that I called New Home that correctly displays all my categories and subcategories (I used Category Style 2 with Homepage builder). See:

    https://www.frogans-directory.com/new-home/

    BUT two things are missing compared to my current homepage (https://www.frogans-directory.com/)

    I cant figure out:

    1. How to display subcategories under main categories, with one subcategory per line

    2. How to display the number of listings in each category and subcategories

    How can I do that?

    Hello Jérôme,
    Only the options provided in the Page Builder are currently available.You will need some customization to change the current styles
