There are two ways to create post archives – by categories or formats, or by using a page template.
Categories (used on the demo for Latest News)
Ambition is designed to use a unique category layout for showcasing your posts, as seen in the theme demo here.
This layout is created automatically based on the posts Categories or Formats. The layout of the post list will adjust to the post format the archive represents – if all posts in a category use the Video format, for example, they will display using large thumbnails in 3 columns rather than small thumbnails in rows.
To use the blog layout, go to→ and add your categories to the menu by checking them in the Category box on the lower-left side. You may need to click to view all your categories. Alternatively, you may select a format to show all posts of a specific format from across more than one category:
Click Add to Menu, then drag into the desired position and click Save.
