6 years, 9 months ago
When I look at the post displayed singly or within the main page of the blog, the video works fine.
But when viewing it inside a category, all I get is the link.
The post in question is “seattle to portland on a bike-car with no gears”
Any idea why?
It looks like you’re using the_excerpt() in your category view which strips out all HTML tags.

Which file do I change and what do I change the_excerpt() to?
It depends on your theme, but probably archives.php and you change it to the_content().
That shows the video but it also shows the whole story instead of just an excerpt. Is there a way around this?
And what’s also odd is that the youtube videos show up fine, it’s the vimeo ones that just have a link in category view.
You can’t have your cake and eat it too (for the most part). the_excerpt() displays the first 55 words of your post with all HTML stripped.
However you can manually create an excerpt using the excerpt box or by using the “more” button.
