I have with iblogpro4 theme. i have now wasted hours trying to figure out how to make my category pages show the full content. At the moment it is just showing the title and i have to click on it to reveal the content why doesn't it show all the content? If you go to my homepage http://1st-offer.co.uk you will see that all of the post is showing, if you click on the sidebar category 3 Mobile it just shows a text link, then you have to click on it to reveal the content, i want the content to be showing all the time please can you tell me what to do to change it, I have changed various settings without success iblogpro3 works fine iblogpro4 does not

If you go to [b]Dashboard > iBlogPro > Pages And Posts[/b] check [b]Post Excerpt Placement[/b] and see which option is selected. Also, is this checked ... [b]Features On Blog/Posts Page[/b]?

I'm going to flag this to a developer as I'm not sure why this is happening.

Received a ticket on the help desk that his issue still persists. I have asked him to make sure that: 1. Wordpress is up to date 2. iBlogPro4 is up to date 3. Plugins are up to date I have asked him to reply to this forum topic after the above have been confirmed. I also requested that he activate iBlogPro4 (he has 3 active now) and deactivate ALL plugins in order to help him troubleshoot.

The "Select A Category" dropdown menu is too wide because it stretches to the width of your longest category (in this case, the category "Flight on the London Eye and Elite Sunday Lunch Jazz Cruise For Two" and several others). You'll need to shorten the category names to ensure that your category dropdown menu doesn't stretch or to make it easier, disable the "Display as dropdown" option in the Categories widget in Appearance > Widgets so that your categories just appear as a list of links.

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Is there no way to alter the theme to shorten the category bar, when i changed it back the categories go down the page too far, i am using data feeds so i can't edit them. Back to the original problem, I disabled all the plugging and the theme shows excerpts of a post, i have seen the same problem on another site

There isn't a way to add linebreaks to the code that generates the code for the dropdown. So far, the best solution is to keep them as a list of links. How are you using data feeds to generate the dropdown? As for the original problem, the developer will need to reply with a confirmation about the information simple_mama posted above.

Hi there, I bought this theme Iblogpro4 months ago and have never used it due to the posts being hidden, look here http://myblockeddrainslondon.co.uk/london/ I have set all the settings to display a full post, why doesn't it work?

I don't know the reason, but we've not had other complaints of this nature. If you add something to the Excerpt field in the post, does it appear in the page you linked above? Is the setting "Show full content on all blog pages"? That would make the full content appear on the blog page. 'Show full content on single pages only' would only display the full content inside the post itself.

Hi, iBlogPro 5 is a child theme of PageLines Framework and therefore, has a lot of options. One of these options is the ability to display full post content on: ??? Posts/Blog Page ??? Search Results ??? Category Lists ??? Post Archives Contact our helpdesk and they may be able to assist you - hello at pagelines dot com
