    The url I shared is the blog page, we just named it Patient Corner. I was hoping to have a way to list the different categories, so if someone chose another category, only the posts from that category would populate. Is that possible?

    Hi there,

    To show the blog posts by category you can use the following url:

    https://somd.pltester.com/category/cbd-topical-creams/

    or 

    https://somd.pltester.com/category/in-our-community/

    Best regards,
    Barry

    Is there a way to get a sidebar on the blog page? I'm building this for a client. and want to be hands free once we launch it. So in all, I'm trying to make sure people can see the categories on the blog page, and the categories will auto populate when the customer creates another category

    Yes this is possible by editing the blog page, in this case the "patient corner" page. If you scroll a bit to the bottom you will find the "Display Sidebar" metabox where you can set the position of the sidebar for the entire blog structure (see attachment).

    Then you can add widgets to the Blog panel under Appearance -> Widgets. To display the available categories you can add the "Categories" widget.

    Thanks again. Do you know how I can change the sidebar for the populated post category pages? and get rid of the "category" where the page title is?
