This section has the settings for the category page. The category page displays a set of sub-categories (if any) and the listings assigned to the current category. The available options are:

Choose Layout

The option to choose a different layout give the site administrator more control over the display of different views. Alternative layouts work in a similar fashion to the template override feature but allow you more options and control. A file is placed in the same folder where you place a template override file. For example, to create an alternative layout for the category (listings) view for the template "protostar", you would put a file in the folder /templates/protostar/html/com_idirectory/listings/. Different from the template override, the file must not be named the same as the core file and must not include underscores in the name. Additionally, there should not be an XML file of the same name in this folder.
