    I hope I’m missing something fairly obvious, but I can’t find settings or documentation on how to customize my archive pages.

    I want to apply a slightly modified Grid Layout, with 5 columns, title and excerpt only + read more, etc. Those settings are not available if I choose “Grid Layout” in the Blog Layout tab of the main dashboard. Using the “Use Advanced Layout” option and inserting a Grid-based “blog” element into the page I can set up as my main blog page how I want it, but then my archive pages look totally different, given the default look, not even default grid-based.

    Please and thanks for any assistance,
    – Greg

    Yikes. I just found this in the docs, and I really hope it’s not the only way. It says you need to add this stuff to functions.php.

    add_filter('avf_blog_style','avia_change_category_blog_layout', 10, 2); 
    function avia_change_category_blog_layout($layout, $context){
    if($context == 'archive') $layout = 'single-small';
    return $layout;
    }

    As customizable and well thought out as Enfold is, I can’t believe adding code to functions.php is the only way to make simple changes to the default blog layout. : / If that’s really/unfortunately the case, some explanation or more instruction would be nice.

    Hi!

    Yes you would need to add that to the functions.php file of your child theme. If you don’t have a child theme yet then you can download our starter child theme here, http://kriesi.at/documentation/enfold/downloads/.

    To make it 5 columns then drag over the archive.php template from Enfold into your child theme folder and change line 45 from this.

    'columns' => 3,
    

    To this.

    'columns' => 5,
    

    Cheers!
