    So I bought Avada awhile ago and no longer have a support license since it expired. However, the theme does not come with a category.php file, so when you go to your blog and you click on a category, the category page looks like crap since it’s using whatever default thing it’s using.

    That being said, what are you guys doing to fix this issue? Does the latest version come with a category.php file to display blog categories correctly, did you download another theme? Looking for advice here. Would have renewed my support license but I do feel like this should have been something to come with the theme to begin with.

    Hi @altjx,

    There is no category.php file in the theme, however that is because the file is not necessary. The template hierarchy is such that the archive.php template file will be used for the category layout. That is included in the theme and can be seen working on our demo websites. For example https://avada.theme-fusion.com/category/photography/.

    The Theme Options for the blog archive can be found in Theme Options > Blog > General Blog – Blog Archive Layout. If those are not being used for you, please check with plugins disabled and any customizations removed (for example in child theme).
