Can I display the entire post when using Archive or Category widget

  1. On my blog if you use the archive widget to select a month, or the category widget to select one category then you see only a summary of the post (heading, who posted and date). What I want is the entire post to show - including photos.

    In other words I want the widget to act as a filter - enabling the reader to see all the posts in a month or a category. Is there a way to do that? For one post I tried copying the entire post into the excerpt box but that didn't change anything.
    I am using the theme Ocean Mist, really like it and don't really want to change.

    The blog I need help with is webbsnaps.wordpress.com.

  2. That is theme specific. Some show titles only, some show excerpt and some show the entire post. See this blog post for a listing of how the different themes display categories and archives pages: http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/03/25/full-posts-in-archive-pages/ .

  3. Thank you. I guess I need to find a new theme that is similar to Ocean Mist.

  4. You're welcome.
