    When a user clicks on a category in the sidebar, only truncated portion of the posts. There seems to be no way to show entire posts, and there are no "Read more" links either. This is troublesome for older visitors who don't know to click on the posts' title.

    Any solutions?

    This seems to be theme-oriented, as mine is doing the same thing. The theme author says she coded it this way deliberately. I use the theme by Basic2Col 2.1 by Kristin K. Wangen.

    I'm using Blue Zinfandel Enhanced 2.0. I'll send an email to the creator to see if there is a way to change this. I really like the theme.

    okay! after i sent the email, i set out to find the problem myself. afterall, how hard can it be? not very. it's a good thing that there is at least a little logic in the way the pages are coded.

    go to presentation - theme editor - archives

    scroll down until you find
    <?php the_excerpt(__('Read more'));?>

    replace excerpt with content

    that's it. now, that list of posts will not show the excerpts only. it will now show the posts just like they look on the front page.

    I'm patting myself on the back.

    With my theme, when I click on the title of the truncated post, it then displays the entire post, image and all. Does yours not work this way?

    When I go to Presentation, Theme Editor, and look for Archives, I don't see any Archives anything. Should I be worried? :)

    it's possible that your theme uses a different name for that file. maybe someone else can give you more help. if you're not having problems, though, there is no reason to go hunting.
