    Is there a way to add an intro to the Blog page (category) “Blog”

    My Blog is split into 3 categories: News/Events, Blog, Borderland Member News.

    This is what I want on the Blog category page as an intro:

    Out of My Mind …………………. Title
    and into the Borderland Arts Blog …. sub-Title

    Our planet is at once a dangerous, explosive, and uncertain place, but also a globe of splendorous beauty and creativity. This blog celebrates … TEXT HERE etc.

    Web address is: http://www.borderlandarts.net

    Hi @kuczekross,

    It looks like you have achieved these blog pages via categories. If not, then what you want can only be achieved by first, dividing the posts to their respective categories, and then you can add title and subtitle to the category pages by going to Dashboard=> Posts=> Categories, then edit the category you want, where you will be able to add name/title and description for category.

    Thanks – if you can take a look … http://www.borderlandarts.net

    The title is too long to put in as the name even if I use just the first part.
    plus it makes the color of the menu bar drop down another line.

    So I added the title into the description which works pretty well. I was able to use (strong) to bold the title.

    Is there a way to make the title in the description larger. I tried <span> (span) to change the font size but that got stripped out when I saved it.

    Can you try following CSS:

    
    .taxonomy-description strong {
        font-size: 22px;
    }
    

    This will increase font size of content inside strong tag. You can try other css as well.

    Let me know if this works or not.

    Thanks Pratik this gets me closer to what I am trying to do.

    Now I would like the first part of the title to be larger than the sub-title.

    Out of My Mind …………………. Title
    and into the Borderland Arts Blog …. sub-Title

    Is there any way to do that?

    Strong seems to be the only tag that doesn’t get stripped out when I save it.

    Hi @kuczekross:
    I am afraid this is not possible. If you want to allow other html tags in category description, you can use plugins like https://wordpress.org/plugins/allow-html-in-category-descriptions/. But please be advised that we do not endorse this plugin, any security issues from these plugins will not be dealt with from our support team. Please use plugins at your own risk.
