    Hi Victoria Campagna

    Here are the answers to your question 

    1. To remove the category description add the below CSS at the bottom of your style.css

    .page-header-description {
      display:none;
    }

    2. You have to create the subsections under the target category, or can you please let me know which theme you are using because for support subsection you have to update the code if your theme does not have a subsection code

    3. To add a bullet list on the articles list and modify the gap between the articles add the following CSS at the bottom of your style.css file

    .section-tree .article-list {
    list-style: disc;
    }

    .section-tree .article-list .article-list-item {
    padding-bottom:0px;
    padding-top:10px;
    }

    Let me know if it solves your issue

    Thanks

    Hi Pulkit,

    Thank you for your help!  I implemented 1 and 3 above and the category page looks so much better :) 

    For #2, I do have subsections under the target category.  I am using the Copenhagen theme.  Do you know what I would have to update to show the subsections?

    Thanks again,
    Victoria

    Hi Victoria Campagna

    Happy to hear that it works for you :)

    For #2 Can you please share the category template Code so that I can look at that your template has Code that helps the Subsection to display

    Thanks

    Hi Pulkit,

    Thanks!  That worked : )

    Is there a way to get it to look similar to the other sections?  They don't necessarily need bullets, but maybe no lines and some sort of right arrow or this symbol ">"?

    Thanks again,
    Victoria

    Hi Pulkit,

    That's exactly what I wanted, thank you!  I might have lied when I said I only had one more question :*(

    If it's possible, can you help me with 2 more changes? 

    The first one is to make the space below the header slightly bigger. 

    The second one is to move the bullets over so that they line up with the headers.  In the image below, see the bullets below "Frequently Asked Questions" as an example.  Under "Recommended Reading" and "How-to Videos" is how they appear now.

    Thank you again,
    Victoria

    thanks Pulkit Pandey that's amazing! Thanks so much for your help. I was wondering if you could help with a couple of other things if possible please.

    1. We'd like to separate the sections in the category page, similar to how comments are separated in this thread.

    2. We'd like to add in category dropdowns at the top of category and section pages to allow the user to navigate to other categories easily, similar to the image below

    great, thanks Pulkit Pandey the sections are now separated. However, only 6 articles are showing, then it shows 'See all X articles', is there any way to show all articles and have them showing in 2 columns rather than 1 long list, like shown in the screenshot I sent please?
