The Divi Theme out of the box is a little limiting as far as the Blog and Category pages go.  Another theme called Extra, by the same company (Elegant Themes) gives you a ton of flexibility when it comes to the category page and customizing them.

How To Change Category Page Images

While the Divi Theme is a fantastic theme to use, certain basic functionality that a user might want to change isn’t always present.  Unfortunately when it comes to the Category Page, the Elegant Themes Divi Theme developers missed the mark and didn’t provide an easy way to customize the Blog category page without using CSS or PHP.

To me this is a major an oversight, which obviously was addressed when the Extra theme was released, but not carried over to Divi.

Category Page CSS Code

Here is some CSS Code that can be used to make the category page more engaging with smaller thumbnail images.

/** Make Images Smaller On The Category Page */

.et_pb_post {
margin-bottom: 100px;
}
.et_pb_post a img {
height: auto;
float: left;
width: 200px;
left: 0;
margin-right: 14px;
margin-bottom: 10px;
}
@media only screen and (max-width: 980px) {
.et_pb_post a img {
float:none;
width:100%;
height: 300px;
}
}
