How to display post title only

  • Hi can anyone help me…

    I’m having a small issue

    is there a wordpress plugin that allows me to control what to display from the post on the home and category pages?

    I want to display post title only.. so that the user must click on the title to see the actual post on a different page

    Thanks

    No – this is handled by editing the theme’s template files.

    how can that be done?

    The theme templates define what is displayed on each page, such as the title, content or extract, and other metadata. You can edit the theme by peeking into the wp-content/themes . The list of folders there is a list of themes installed and you’ll have to modify the one being used by your current setup.

    Ideally, you would want to do this with a page template at. Here’s a good explanation of page templates:

    It is possible to use plugins to get WordPress to go to a different page defined by the plugin, but that isn’t versatile (a theme may want to override it, but it can’t!) – the theme ought to handle the page layout, not the plugin.
