    Hi, recently installed vanilla WordPress at

    http://www.yingtong.co.uk/training

    I have posted to the blog and on the front page the url displays as expected, but if I filter on the category (online resources) the text is not hyperlinked. In MySQL the post content is

    Up to date Resuscitation Guidelines

    Something obvious I am sure ...

    Go through the index.php, find any
    the_excerpt
    and replace them with
    the_content

    See what that does ?

    Wow, under 5 mins to respond, not bad!

    Slightly embarrassed now... which index.php?

    Under the main blog site it only contains

    <?php
    /* Short and sweet */
    define('WP_USE_THEMES', true);
    require('./wp-blog-header.php');
    ?>

    It's in the themes directory :)

    Presentation > theme editor
    then it's called index.php or main template

    or using ftp:

    Look in other files also, specifically archive.php

    Bingo. Thanks

    Now the consequence of that seems to be that the code is wrong or am I missing the point, in which case how does it get back to the developers. You obviously had a hunch before we started...

    I had heard the support here was good, and so far 10/10

    Cheers

    No, the concept is not wrong... just how it was designed. If you want links to show up in the excerpt, don't have WP "fake it" - copy that portion you want to show in the excerpt textarea.

    You can also use a plugin... http://guff.szub.net/the-excerpt-reloaded

    or use the_excerpt_rss() with the parameter to display html... http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/the_excerpt_rss

    Or..... get another theme. The default has some ... hmm... idiosyncrasies :)
