    There are also some hooks available for adding fields to the category archives. Very handy for using more static content on category archives.

    I think it requires these hooks:
    edit_category_form_fields,
    category_add_form_fields,
    edited_category,
    created_category

    The template hierarchy demonstrates this nicely –

    Thanks Justin, glad to see there’s a quick & easy built-in method for adding categories to the menu! The other tutorials I stumbled upon involved coding and most likely hours of tweaking, your method took about 5 mins for a first-timer including the 2 mins to read this page :)

    Great article. I was about to make a page template and kept thinking to myself “I know I’ve done this a simpler way before!” You just saved me a lot of time. Very good summary of the subject.

    I’d like to create a page that lists ALL posts, organized by category. For example, it would say:

    Content

    blog post 1 in the content category

    blog post 1 in the content category

    Design

    blog post 1 in the design category

    blog post 1 in the design category

    Can that be done?
