Post Content - Post Excerpts - Post Title (2 posts)

    I'm looking for a plugin that allows
    different content to display in category archive page.

    If I put the three categories into my WordPress, I would like to:
    - one category on its archive page displays the whole post - post content,
    - the other category on its archive page displays post excperts
    and
    - a third category displays just a post title.

    Is this function - settings possible on the same installation of WP
    and is there any plugin that allows something like that? Are there any codes that allow this function?

    using category templates you should be able to do what you want simply working on the loop in every template file ;)

    Eg:
    the 3 categs are:

    • alpha - display whole content (template file category-alpha.php)
    • gamma - display only the excerpt (template file category-gamma.php)
    • beta - display only post title (template file category-beta.php)

    Now for those template files to do what you want, you'll simply have to adjust the way the loop displays contents inside those 3 files... ;)

    no plugins, no strange functions... just WordPress!!

    PS
    the template category-{slug}.php was added in WP 2.9, but I'm sure you have the latest stable, don't you?! ;)
