    Please see the link below and you will see that the videos and pictures are not appearing on the Category page in the post. They only appear in the post when viewing on the home page or by reading a specific post.


    Please help. Thank you.

    If you go into your category template in the theme editor, you should find that you have the function "the_excerpt()" in use. If you replace that with "the_content()", the full content will appear, including images and videos.

    If you go to your dashboard (at http://www.yoursite.com/wp-admin), you should see "appearance" on the left hand side. Hover over it, then click "editor" from the submenu that pops up. Now, on the right hand side of the page, look for a link to "category". Click it, and then, in the main editable field that takes up most of the center of the screen, see if you can hunt down any instances of the term "the_excerpt()", and then replace it with "the_content()".

    Thanks a ton. I quickly got to that page but there is no category section to choose. These are the mentions including excerpt below. Not sure which ones I should change to content.

    /* @ Posts */
    .fpost .post-excerpt .post-thumb.img {margin-right: 13px}
    .fpost .post-thumb.img { margin-right: 20px;}
    .full_img {margin-bottom: .8em;}

    .clip .post-excerpt .post-thumb.img {margin-right: 10px}
    .clip .entry-title, .clip .metabar { padding: 0; }

    .clip .post-excerpt {
    /* Posts Meta & Excerpts */

    .hentry, .fpost .post-excerpt {font-size: 1.03em; line-height: 1.67em;}
    .clip .post-excerpt{ font-size: 90%; line-height: 1.6em}
    .clip .metabar{font-size: 75%; line-height: 1.6em}
    /* Sidebars */

    * @ Paragraphs
    p, .p, .hentry ul, .hentry ol{margin: 1.6em 0;}
    .entry_content :first-child, .post-excerpt > :first-child{margin-top: 0;}
    .post-excerpt > :last-child, .entry_content > :last-child {margin-bottom: 0;}
    p {hyphenate: auto;hyphenate-before:2;hyphenate-after:3;hyphenate-lines: 3;orphans:4}
    p span.pullquote{text-indent:0;}

    What you're seeing there is the css. That only defines the appearance of content, not the content itself. So it could change the font size, but wouldn't make the videos or pics show up.

    So it looks like pagelines is a bit funky/different than your usual wordpress theme. I took a look at http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/How_to_Use_Special_Pages and it seems you'll need to go to "pagelines" on the left menu, then "special", then "category page". Once you get in there, just poke around and see if you can find anything referring to excerpts. However they're listing it, the problem is going to be that they're showing excerpts rather than full posts. Good luck! Keep digging!
