How to make excerpts only on category pages
Hi, I’m a newbie and I’ve been reading everything I can on the forums, and often not yet understanding most of it – but learning fast.
So today, I want to change my category template. I want my single posts and my front page to show the full post, but on the category pages I want the posts to be shortened and just show the featured image, the title and the excerpt.
I’ve read that I need to go to my category.php and replace the_content with the_excerpt. Seems perfectly sensible – except when I go to the category.php file it doesn’t look like I expect. Here it is:
Can anyone tell me what I need to change to get my category pages looking how I like. Perhaps I need to go to a different file – but its all to new to me.
I very much appreciate any help on this one, as all my searching hasn’t been able to find what to do. Thank you.
