Main Menu help (4 posts)

    Hello,

    In wordpress on the main menu under categories...I have created for example 5 categories...when I click on the links it will automatically go to the archived category section....Is there anyway to stop it from going to the archived section of that category ?

    For Example...If I click on Jack Russells in the main menu link, it will go to the shortened version of the article ( which is the archives category page )and You have to click on the title to view the full article.

    I would like to be able to click on a menu link and everything that I wrote fo that month in that particular category show up and not go to the shortened archive page.

    Does that make sense ?

    Yep. The Kubrick (default) theme, and some others, uses the_excerpt() tag for category and archive pages. Open archive.php for your theme (and category.php, if it has one) in a text editor and where you find this:

    <?php the_excerpt() ?>

    Change it to this:

    <?php the_content() ?>

    That sounds like a easy fix...Thanks....

    Oooop...I don't have a category.php and there is no file referencing this <?php the_excerpt() ?> in the archive.php ?

    thanks

    I was looking in archives.php instead of archive.ph....Thanks...I think that did the trick !
