No summary at the_content and the_excerpt properties (2 posts)

    Its kinda hard this!
    Well, i want to make that the single.php shows the properties only the full post. For this, i use the_content and has no problems.

    So, the archives.php i want to make show only the summary, the "the_excerpt".

    So, done that and everything was fine, BUT
    When you dont write a summary (the tag <!--more-->), the archive shows nothing.

    How can i make the archive shows the content when the writer doesnt put the "MORE" condition and keep the things going in this way?

    I don't believe the_excerpt has anything to do with the <!--more--> tag. The_excerpt is simply the first 200 or so characters of an entry, with [...] placed at the end of any entries longer than that.

    A link to your site might help to analyze this problem further.
