    Your awesome theme is going on awesome. I just want to know how to show only excerpts in category and tag views instead of showing the posts in full. Please suggest measures. Thanks

    Thanks for the great comment…however, I will have to move this topic to the appropriate forum because it sounds like it relates to a specific theme…which theme is it?

    Oh I am really sorry. I thought I posted it in Preference Pro theme section. Somehow I posted it here…please move or remove. 🙂

    No worries, the topic is now moved to the Preference Pro forum. Anyway, if I understand this correctly, you want to split your posts with the “Insert more” tag from the editor which is actually a WordPress function. There’s an icon button to do this which adds the Read more (or continue reading) of a post.

    Speaking clearly, on my site when people visit following a tag or a category, they find full contents of the tagged or category posts. I want to show only the excerpts in such cases. An instance is: http://rupkatha.com/tag/new-historicism

    Thank you for the link you posted. There are two methods to split a post into a summary or excerpt, which is achieved from how the theme’s content template file is coded. You can have a content summary which is determined from the point where the author inserts a “read more” tag into the post, or an excerpt where a specific character count determines a fixed summary of text. Either one provides a short summary with the ability to proceed to the full article.

    Is this what you were wanting? If so, the content.php file will require modifying.
