How to show full posts on some cat pages, just titles on all other cat pages

Recommended Posts

I want to show the full posts on the homepage and some of the category pages. On all the rest of the category pages, I want to show just the post titles. How can I do this? Thank you!

Hi, Can you please send me a link to your website? It might be possible to choose which categories display full posts and which don't. I'll have to check it out. Have you tried playing around with the "Full Post Content Placement" options in the theme options?


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

Yes, I have tried that. Here is the link to my site: http://padtip.com Also, I want the search results to display excerpts. You would think there would be a Wordpress plugin for this, but I couldn't find one. For example, what if I wanted to: display excerpt on Cat1, Cat2, Cat4 disaply full posts on Cat3, Cat5 display just titles on Cat6, Cat7 display full posts on homepage

Hi, I've looked into ways that this could be possible and the only one that I've found is to create a separate template for the categories that you want full posts for, a separate template for the categories that you want excerpts for, and a separate template for the categories that you want only titles for (creating a total of three separate templates that will be needed to the get the results you desire). There is this easy tutorial on setting up custom WordPress templates for different categories: http://mattmedia.net/2007/10/09/how-to-set-up-custom-wordpress-category-templates-in-four-easy-steps/. I hope it helps. If you would rather not deal with creating these templates yourself, please refer to this forum topic on advanced customization: http://www.pagelines.com/forum/topic.php?id=1632
