In the example snippet below the page_o object contains a category object as described above plus a collection of articles  page_o.articles. Each article can be displayed via a For Each ... End For Each loop where the variable $item is the article in the collection. 

In the event that the category does not have any published content we test the length of the collection.

<!--#4DIF page_o.articles.length#0-->  <!--#4DENDIF-->

For each page in the collection defined as $item insert the content as $item using the filed names from the article. See single Article example 

<!--#4DHTML page_o.category.title-->
<!--#4DHTML page_o.category.description-->
<div class="row gy-6">
<!--#4DIF page_o.articles.length#0--> // do we have any pages in the collection
  <!--#4DEACH $item in page_o.articles--> // $item is each page or post in the page_o.articles collection

    <h5 class="post-title"><a href="<!--#4DHTML $item.path-->" // $item.path is the url
            rel="bookmark"><!--#4DTEXT $item.title--></a></h5> // title or page or post
            <!--#4DHTML $item.introtext--> 
                  <!--#4DIF $item.fulltext#""--> // Only show the full text if you have content.
                                    <!--#4DHTML $item.fulltext-->
    <div class="post-meta down">
        <span class="author-name">
            <i class="fa fa-user-secret"></i> <!--#4DHTML $>
  <!--/column -->
