You can create a Category Template page that will display all of the blog posts within the a single category.

Create Your Category Template

When creating a category template design it's recommended you create a duplicate of your Blog (Post List) template. The Category Template will function similarly to the Blog Template by displaying multiple WordPress blog posts and using a pagination canvas at the bottom. From there, you can make minor adjustments to this page in order to set a live Category Template.

Duplicate the Blog Page

Duplicate your Blog template and rename it Category to help you identify the template. 

Set a WordPress Template

Navigate over to the Template Info tab and choose the Category option from the WordPress Template drop-down menu.

Add a Category Title

Add the Category Title placeholder to a canvas at the top of your page. The canvas that the Category Title placeholder is on should have a WordPress setting of Static Content.

You can make any design adjustments you wish and publish the updates! This might include changing the layout to a Side-by-Side post layout.
