[resolved] Full post and changing sticky on category page (5 posts)

    Here's the URL at question:

    http://videoexperiment.com/blog/category/videos-we-like/

    I'm using the MistyLook theme.

    Basically I'd like to have the full post rather than an excerpt in the category pages. Also, is there a way to modify this text at the top of the first post:

    "Archive for the 'Videos We Like' Category"

    You will have to edit the category.php or archive.php of the theme.
    This might be a good guide:

    The weird thing is I don't see category.php as an option to edit...

    * Stylesheet
    * 404 Template
    * Archives
    * author.php
    * Comments
    * Contact
    * Footer
    * functions.php
    * Header
    * Main Index Template
    * Archives
    * Links
    * Page Template
    * Search Results
    * Sidebar
    * Single Post

    As I said: category.php OR archive.php, depending on your theme's structure. The link I gave you should have clarified for you which file to look for.
    If you don't have a category.php it means your category archives are displayed by the archive.php file. (Warning: it is NOT the same as archives.php with plural S at the end!)

    Ok FYI - I figured out what I needed to do. It was in archive.php.

    Change <?php the_exerpt(); ?> to <?php the_content(); ?>

    Also to change the text at the top delete:

    <h2 class="pagetitle">Archive for the '<?php echo single_cat_title(); ?>' Category</h2>
