Images not appearing in category posts (8 posts)

    I have seen some posts already on this subject but I am not very technical so need a very basic explanation please. I have managed to upload images into posts, however these posts are within categories and when I look in the categories the images are not shown. I would be very grateful for any help with this. Many thanks.

    then the solution is probably the same as in many of these posts:

    look into the category.php template (or archive.php if the category.php does not exist) and see if there is the_excerpt();

    if so excange it with the_content()

    details will depend on the theme you are using.

    Thanks for the reply. I have also realised that any change I make to a post does not apply to the post within a category. Would this be the same reason??

    that would depend on the nature of the change.

    is the content of the post in the category page automatically shortened?

    have you tried to find out about the excerpt?

    a link to your site might help to illustrate your problem.

    Link to my site is

    If I make a change to the style, add more line space, put text in bold, none of these changes are made to post within a category.

    I don't know what 'excerpt' is.
    Thanks for your help.

    this is typical for the excerpt to strip all these from the content - so it seems very likely that your template is using 'the_excerpt()'.

    Right, so is there an easy solution? Do I follow the first link and read? The problem is I don't always understand the language! You are being very helpful, thanks. Lisa

    no - there is usually no other solution than to edit one or more of the theme's template files.
