Calendar Cuts off Message in WordPress Default 1.5 (4 posts)

    After hours of searching and various tries, I have finally got a calendar running on my blog. I'm using the WordPress Default 1.5 theme which does not come with the calendar. I'm running the most recent version of WordPress.

    When clicking on a date on the calendar, I see the message of that date, but it is truncated (without even a link to the whole message). Since this does not happen with my other blog's calendar, I wonder, is that behavior that can be fixed?

  2. It is only possible to either display the full message with links or the truncated message with no links. Unfortunately, changing this for the daily archives from the calendar will also affect your monthly archives, there is no way to specify which you want to change. To change your tuncated and link-less archive posts to full posts with links, open your theme's Archive Template in the Theme Editor. Now, search for this line:

    <?php the_excerpt() ?>

    And, change that to:

    <?php the_content('Read the rest of this entry »'); ?>

    ok, I understand how to do this. Can you explain how this will affect the monthly archives?

  4. It's difficult to explain this late, I only mentioned it because it sounded like you only wanted to change the daily archives. Just give it a shot, if you don't like it, you can always change it back.
