    Right now, I made my whole wordpress blog display the_excerpt instead of the_content. But, I would like it to show the_content only on the video category page. Right now in the content.php files it grabs the extension "muimedia_post_entry_summary". In my content extensions php file here is the code for the entry summary.

    /* muimedia_post_entry_summary */
    if ( !function_exists( 'muimedia_post_entry_summary' ) ) {
    	function muimedia_post_entry_summary() {
    		?>
    		<div class="entry-summary">
    			<?php if (has_post_thumbnail()){ ?>
    			<a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" title="<?php the_title_attribute( array('before' => esc_attr__( 'Permalink: ', 'muimedia' ), 'after' => '')); ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?></a>
    			<?php } ?>
    			<div id="categorysummary">
    			<?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    			</div>
    		</div>
    		<?php
    	}
    }

    This code gets each post's thumbnail and excerpt.. and I'm trying to get it to show the content ONLY on the videos category page. I tried the following:

    /* muimedia_post_entry_summary video page */
    if ( !function_exists( 'muimedia_post_entry_summary' ) && is_category( 'videos' )  ) {
    	 function muimedia_post_video_entry_summary() {
    		?>
    		<div class="entry-content">
    
    			<?php the_content(); ?>
    
    		</div>
    		<?php
    	}
    }

    As you can see I tried the && is_category, I also tired || is_category and also replacing the category name with it's ID. I don't really know what else to do :( If anyone could help me on this small issue it would meann soooo sooo much to me! It really would. As for right now I will be off my computer. But, I will make my return to my computer within the next 30 mins.. Hopefully YOU will have the right solution! :) lolll

    Why not check if the attachment is of a certain MIME?

    @Jose Castaneda Thx so much for the reply bro, I appreciate it!

    Here is the code that is calling the post entry summary...

    <div id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>" <?php post_class(); ?>>
    	<?php do_action('muimedia_entry_title'); ?>
    
    	<?php do_action('muimedia_post_before_entry_content'); ?>
    
    	<?php do_action('muimedia_post_entry_summary'); ?>
    
    	<?php do_action('muimedia_post_after_entry_content'); ?>
    </div>

    To be honest, I have no idea what MIME's are and I dont know if that would help to be honest. :(

    The file extension in simple terms. You can run a quick test and if it returns true then use the_content otherwise use the_excerpt

    @Jose Castaneda I was just looking for a quick php code fix to get the_content to only show under one page (the video category page).

    Right now I have

    /* muimedia_post_entry_summary video page */
    if ( !function_exists( 'muimedia_post_entry_summary' ) && is_category( 'videos' )  ) {
    	 function muimedia_post_video_entry_summary() {
    		?>

    But it is not working. If you really think running "a quick test" will fix this problem, please tell me where and how I can run this test :)

    Sorry, totally misread that but even so it still is pretty quick it sounds like. If you have category-video.php you can use the_content instead. Try that. :)
