Podcast category not showing link

  • I didn’t really know what to search for on this, and what I did search for didn’t address it.

    I think it may have to do with the comments being closed after a certain length of time, but I’ve created a category called “podcasts” where I’m going to put any audio posts.

    But, when I go back to the one and only one I’ve done so far (which was a happy birthday song) the link doesn’t show. If I click on “no comments” because there were no comments and the comments are now closed, then it shows me the link to the song.

    Is there any way of fixing the link so it shows? Is it to do with the comments being closed – and if so, why would the link only be available when clicking on the comment link?

    Your help is appreciated.

  • It’s probably due to the theme in use. For example, the default theme (Kubrick) only displays excerpts on category and archive pages using the_excerpt() tag, and this strips HTML from the post content’s summary.

    If your theme has a category.php and archive.php, edit these so that:

    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>

    is instead:

    <?php the_content(); ?>

    Thank you so much, that worked perfectly 😀
