WordPress Child Theme – Category Template Display Full Posts
WordPress version: 3.1.3
Parent theme: TwentyTen 1.2
Create new Category template to display full posts, instead of excerpt posts, on a Category page.
- Copy loop-page.php file from TwentyTen folder to child theme folder.
- Change file name to: loop-category.php.
- It’s the <?php the_content(); ?> in the original loop-page.php file that makes the Full Posts possible.
Very nice and quick. Only issue I ran into is that there is no message if there are no posts in the specific category.
You’re correct, Chet, the Category would be empty if there are no posts in it to begin with. Something further would need to be done to add a message to the Category itself. I don’t yet know how that’s accomplished, though.
Of course, my method above may not be the best way to display full posts – as opposed to excerpts – on a Category page.
