    Hi,

    i was wondering if it is possible to make a page that displays all the post of an specified category.

    mabye there's a plugin that does this?
    i found this one: http://watershedstudio.com/portfolio/software-development/wordpress-category-posts-plugin/#about
    it shows the links, but mabye it can be modified that it shows full posts?

    Thanks in Advanced.

    Hi,

    You need to category.php file of your theme and find this code:

    the_excerpt()

    Replace with:

    the_content()

    Now, it will display full post on your category page.

    Thanks,

    Shane G.

    It actually would be archive.php and that would not "make a page that displays all the post of a specified category". That would make all of your category (and other archive) pages display full posts rather than excerpts.

    Try the Category Shortcode plugin.

    now thats seems to get me somewhere.

    only when i put this code in:
    [Category number='10' method='full' order='asc' id='1' orderby='date']
    nothing shows up.
    though this will work:
    [Category number='10' method='title' order='asc' id='1' orderby='date']

    mabye you might know what is causing this problem.

    Thanks

    Shane G got it right (apart from it being in the 'archives.php' and not 'categories.php'. This method works perfectly well for me. Thanks, Ray.

    Hi, I've been having a similar problem and it seems the answer is to modify the archive.php file. However, my theme seems to not have this file. I'm using Atahualpa. Any ideas as to what I would have to do?

    Thank you

    Ran into a great plugin that makes a page look very similar to a category....blog in blog plugin. It takes any category and places it in a page of your choice with shortcode.

    In WordPress 3.0, you need to go to the "loop.php" file, search for "the_excerpt()" and replace it with "the_content()" in one place.

    It might be different depending on what theme you're using, but in "Twenty Ten" the place you need to replace it is here:

    <?php if ( is_archive() || is_search() ) : // Only display excerpts for archives and search. ?>
    			<div class="entry-summary">
    				<?php the_excerpt(); ?><!-- CHANGE THIS TO "the_content()" -->

    This appears to be working for me.

    It seems like with the addition of the menu builder, there should be a simple checkbox in the backend allowing Category pages to display full posts instead of excerpts.

    I am looking for the same solution as Jorrit.
    My template BizLite does not have the
    the_excerpt() or
    the_content()
    in either the category.php or archive.php files.
    What should I do? One of those plug-ins seem to work for me either.

    My theme doesn't have a loop.php file either

    Shane G's solution worked exactly right for me.

    I went to my Loop.php file and found this:
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>

    and replaced it with:
    <?php the_content(); ?>

    Yep it's in loop.php

    Replacing
    the_excerpt()
    with
    the_content()
    in the loop.php file did NOT work for me (theme: thrid-style). However, the Post Teaser plugin mentioned by petrusfajarsubekti worked fine.

    I suppose it all depends upon the theme.
