On the main site page (www.ttfn.tv) the blog posts are shown in full. If however you click on a category then only the headers are shown. In 'Pages and Posts' Post Thumbnail and Post Excerpt are set to 'don't show', and Full Post Content Placement is set to 'Show full content on all blog pages'. If I set Post Excerpt to all pages I get the excerpt and the full posting on the main page and just the excerpts after selecting the categories. Any suggestions as to what may be wrong here?

Nothing is "wrong".

I believe that category pages are technically NOT blog pages and are more like search result pages or a listing page.

The default function here is plain Jane.

To enhance the control for category pages and make them fancier, you might try:

http://wordpress.org...ugins/page2cat/

or try some others:

http://wordpress.org....php?q=category

You might also search for post plugins where you could probably pull posts into pages by category and control how they appear.

Thanks, Bryan

Thanks for the help. Have found a plug in that fixes this for me - Pages Posts. From reading the wordpress forums this can be included in a template but clearly isn't in StationPro. In Theme Options the option - "'Full Post Content Placement' Where should the theme place the full content of posts? " does seem to indicate that it should! Mark

I'm running the WhiteHouse theme and would like to have a Worpress Nav page that points to a category, and on this page I'd like to see full posts, not exerpt. Presently I have only the title of the post. http://klbts.com/category/reviews/

Hi David, can you please start your own new topic in the WhiteHousePro section? It will get better attention and help others that way too. Mark, I'm marking this for developer review for you so it get's special attention. Thanks, Bryan
