  • Hi,

    You need to category.php file of your theme and find this code:


    Replace with:


    Now, it will display full post on your category page.


    Shane G.

    It actually would be archive.php and that would not “make a page that displays all the post of a specified category”. That would make all of your category (and other archive) pages display full posts rather than excerpts.

    the Page Of Posts Page Template does not work for me 🙁

    does anyone know another way to do this?
    mabye anyone knows what i need to change in this plugin to display whole posts?




    Nobody knows any Solution for this?



    Try the Category Shortcode plugin.



    now thats seems to get me somewhere.

    only when i put this code in:
    [Category number=’10’ method=’full‘ order=’asc’ id=’1′ orderby=’date’]
    nothing shows up.
    though this will work:
    [Category number=’10’ method=’title‘ order=’asc’ id=’1′ orderby=’date’]

    mabye you might know what is causing this problem.




    can i also just get full post in /archives/category/blog/



    i see this all the time,
    i’ve already Replaced the_excerpt() with the_content()

    what do i do?

    Shane G got it right (apart from it being in the ‘archives.php’ and not ‘categories.php’. This method works perfectly well for me. Thanks, Ray.

    Hi, I’ve been having a similar problem and it seems the answer is to modify the archive.php file. However, my theme seems to not have this file. I’m using Atahualpa. Any ideas as to what I would have to do?

    Thank you

    Ran into a great plugin that makes a page look very similar to a category….blog in blog plugin. It takes any category and places it in a page of your choice with shortcode.

    In WordPress 3.0, you need to go to the “loop.php” file, search for “the_excerpt()” and replace it with “the_content()” in one place.

    It might be different depending on what theme you’re using, but in “Twenty Ten” the place you need to replace it is here:

    <?php if ( is_archive() || is_search() ) : // Only display excerpts for archives and search. ?>
    			<div class="entry-summary">
    				<?php the_excerpt(); ?><!-- CHANGE THIS TO "the_content()" -->

    This appears to be working for me.

    It seems like with the addition of the menu builder, there should be a simple checkbox in the backend allowing Category pages to display full posts instead of excerpts.

    I use this plug-ins
    It can manage lot of things about post.
    It useful for my blog.
    I have use it for long time

    thanks logangreer
