    Looking for “how to” or to see a working sample of categories as featured content on the home page. If working I would expect it to take user to the posts in that category. It seems like pages or posts are the only ones that work. If it works, how get an image to represent the category on the home page?

    @jim-sutton: Hello there,
    To use Category Feature Content Type you will need to category your posts in to categories.

    Then,
    Go to => Appearance => Customize => Featured Content => Select Content Type => Select Categories and Publish.

    Let me know if this works out!
    Kind Regards,
    Skandha

    Yes, thanks, Skandha. I see that. I was trying to control which image gets displayed for a category, and it looks like it uses the image from the most recent post within the category. Ok, I get it, thanks.

    By the way… Is there a way to stop the blog from showing or limit the number of posts that show under the blog heading?

    @jim-sutton: Hello there,
    To limit the number of posts on the blog page

    Go to => Dashboard => Settings => Reading => Blog pages show at most => Change the number and Save Changes.

    Let me know if this is what you want!
    Kind Regards,
    Skandha

    Thanks @Skandha. When the categories are displayed, is there an easy way to show just the “primary” categories (not sub)? Please and more thanks.
