Pete! My name is ***** *****! :) I have a WordPress Loop

Customer Question

Customer: Hi Pete! My name is ***** *****! :) I have a WordPress Loop question. On my dev site, when someone clicks the link for an empty category, they get a page that says "No posts were found." I would like to know how to customize that message...
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I would like to know where that text is found so I may change it. I believe its located in category.php of the theme, but I'm not seeing that text... I also checked function.php and archive.php
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Programming Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: Yes, I'm willing to wait. How much to wait?
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hello Pete - My name is ***** ***** I will help you with your question. Can you zip up and send my your category.php file. The message to display empty content is typically configured there. I have found a link that describes this perfectly.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Absolutely. This is the category.php file from my theme...
Expert:  Jason Carlamere replied 1 year ago.

Hi Pete - Thank you for sending this to me. I have another question for you. Do you have any other files in your directory that has "category" in the name... for example - category-new.php ? and if so can you send me those... The reason I ask is because there is a loading order for the category.php files that wordpress uses. the standard category.php is loaded last if there are no other category files. Also - Can you send me your archive.php and index.php

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sure thing! Here are the files from the index.php and archive.php files from the theme and category files from WP Includes. This is one tough nut to crack. I'd be happy to send you the website in question. Is there a way to cloak it??

Hi Pete - I'm gonna continue to look at this but I am going to opt out so that another expert can also take a look
