I am making a news website which has about 10 categories. I am using News pro theme. However, I want category pages to show as much content as possible. The default settings of the News Pro theme do not allow me to do so. Could I arrange the content on category pages like on the new York Times as shown below.
Main page: http://www.nytimes.com/
A category page: http://markets.on.nytimes.com/research/markets/overview/overview.asp?src=busfn
In the example shown above, even the category pages show lots of content. I want my site to show the content in a similar fashion. Could anyone please let me know how to achieve that by using News Pro theme?

You'll have to be way more specific about what changes you desire, as in what your site currently does (supply a page), and what you want it to do. Changing the entire design of a page isn't really a question, so give us specifics, such as "show more posts", "less spacing between posts", "x content on sidebar", etc.

Thank you for the reply to my request. Following is my domain.
This is the main page. I want every category page to display news items exactly as they are being shown on the index page. But, of course, these category pages will have their own content.
Once I click on a category, it should take to me its own page with its own content. But the display should be as is shown on the index page. The reason is that this way, I want to show lots of content for all the categories
Currently, the main page is showing three columns. I want even the respective category pages to display conten in three columns. Currently, the category pages are showing two columns in a blog style. Hope I was able to explain properly.

This might require some pretty heavy modification, but it's certainly possible.
The firs thing I would check, is going to your admin dashbaord > Genesis > Theme Settings, and seeing what the "default layout" is set to. You may be able to simply change this to the three column layout your home page is using, and it'll retain the same format (depending on how the css / archives template is set up).
If there isn't an option there / in whatever custom theme options menu you may have, you'll want to create (or modify if it already exists) category.php or archive.php (use archive.php if category.php doesn't exist), which is the template for all of your category pages. You can likely look at the other template files in your theme, and copy / paste content to make it look like the home page.
Like I said, this may be very simple, or require a fair amount of customization, it'll be extremely hard to guide you too much (assuming the easy fix doesn't work) without access to files, and a decent amount of work / time put in.

Thank you again so much. It was a like a piece of cake. Just took a second to get three columns. Now it has started showing a secondary sidebar widget on category pages. But, is it possible for me To control the content of these category columns as I do on the index page?
Thanks and regards
