Show Full Post (Not Excerpt) On Category Page

Recommended Posts

cstudio

Using PageLines 2.0.1 we are having difficulty showing a full posts, as opposed to the default excerpts, on the categories page. It appears there is functionality to control this in PageLines->Settings->Blogs and Posts->Post Excerpt or Summary Handling (and Full Post Content). Under Full Post Content, when the Category Lists is checked, we get the results we are after. However, the excerpt is shown in addition to these results. It appears the excerpts should be disabled by unchecking the Category Lists in the Post Excerpt or Summary Handling section, but this has no impact. Ideally, we would like this to apply to one category only. We are familiar with WP and the typical route of controlling this via the template hierarchy or using functions.php. If we went this route instead of using the PageLines dashboard controls, what template should we use as a "base" to start our custom template and where should it be stored? Also, we have installed Pagelines Customize Plugin, so I imagine the file should be stored there as category-mycat.php. Please advise, thank you!

This was a bug in the excerpt logic. Example... is_category() is true for a category page, but so is is_archive() so thats why you were getting duplicate content! If your happy to update a file: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/29858470/class.posts.php It goes in pagelines/includes/ folder.

You the man, thanks. I updated the class.posts.php file and this resolved the issue.
