An Article Category Block is a list of articles that have been grouped under a specific category. You can just choose a category to see the articles that have been assigned to it.

Article Category Blocks are helpful if you have a specific topic or theme that you’d like to showcase on your homepage, such as special reports, most popular, written-by-author, etc.

This is how you add an Article Category Block to your Universal App homepage:

  1. Log into your Universal App account.

  2. Go to Branding > Appearance.

  3. Click on the + button where you want to insert it and click on Article Category.

  4. Fill in the details: article list name, color, and variant. You can choose to showcase 5, 6, or 16 articles.

  5. Choose the desired category from the dropdown list. You will see the total number of published articles assigned to each category on your list.

  6. When you’re done, click on Save Changes.

  7. Preview your Universal App to see the update from your reader’s perspective.

That’s it! 🎉
