    Have a question regarding the category pages in wordpress.
    Right now for me they show a slimmed version of my posts with no images.
    Then you have to click the posts to see them full.
    What I would like is to see the whole posts in the category pages just as on the frontpage.
    Anyone that can help med and tell me how to do this.
    I thought it was just a setting but can't find anything that could change that.

    Are you using the Template Tag, the_content(), in your Category Template?

    If not you may need to paste the contents of the template file at http://wordpress.pastebin.ca/ and report the link back here.

    I will read the info about the templates later when I get home.
    Hopefully that can help me achieve what I want.
    The only thing edited from standard wordpress now is my theme.

    I may not have been clear, but you will want to use the_content in your category template.

    Where is my category template? When I hear that I directly go into my theme folder but that's not right is it?
    If I am to find my category template where should I look? :D

    That would be in wp-content/themes/what-ever-your-theme-is folder. In that folder, it could be category-x.php, it could be category.php, or it could be archive.php or index.php--depends on what theme you are using.

    Please review
    Category Templates and Template Hierarchy before proceeding.

    In my archive.php file i was using the_excerpt(); and now I just changed it to the_content();
    Should I do something else or is that enough and without bugs. :)
