Editor : Blog Categories Link Element Overview

Robert Paisley

This article will cover information on the Blog Categories Link element. The Blog Categories Link element is one of the Blog type elements in the page editor. c The content is dynamically updated based on your categories.

This element can be found in the Elements menu by mousing over a current element on the page and clicking on the orange “Add Element” button. You can scroll through the menu to locate it, click on the Blog Element Group, or type “Blog” in the search field.


You can click and hold the element to drag it into position.

Clicking and holding the move icon will allow you to drag the element to a new location on the page.


Element Name

This is the name of the currently selected element. The name given will be the default name of the element. You can change the name in the CSS info of the Coding menu.



Clicking on this gear icon will open the individual settings of the element. Each element has specific settings based on its functions. Please check the Settings section below for further information.



The clone icon will duplicate the currently selected element and place it below the current element.



Custom CSS can help you extend the design of each section on your page to meet your needs both visually and functionally. As the code requires, you can add coding to one of three areas: CSS, Header, or Footer.

The CSS Info for the element is on the right of the CSS window. The title of the element can be changed in the title field to allow for easier identification.

Due to the many different styles and uses of custom coding, ClickFunnels' Support Agents will not troubleshoot specific codes. Instead you can submit a request for help in the Coding section of our Community, or reach out to the code provider for support.



Clicking on the trash icon will delete the element from the editor.
