Disappearing bullet points in Yoko category archives page

  1. I'm having a problem with bullet points -- they're disappearing. I would like the post on the primary page to look the same as it does on the category archives page. The post on the main page has bullets and the category archive deletes the bullet points, and the text runs together. I'm using the Yoko theme. Thanks for your help!

  2. Whether or not full posts are displayed on Categories Pages and Archives pages is theme dependent ie. it's coded into the template and we cannot edit templates or themes. http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/editing-themes/

    In the majority of themes, posts on category or other archive pages show up just as they do on the main posts page in the blog and the number displayed is also the same. (See this page > Settings > Reading and note how many posts you choose there sets it for all). But in some themes only the beginnings of posts are shown, and in a few themes you only get titles or thumbnails. See here for a theme list of themes that may display the way you want > Category/archive pages: full posts or not http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/03/25/full-posts-in-archive-pages/

    In magazine styled themes only excerpts display on the front page of the blog but some have an active excerpt box below the post editor, so you can control the length of the excerpt displayed. This is the workaround you can use to override excerpt display on the front page and display a whole post instead.

    When creating a post or page on your WordPress.com blog, you have two editing modes available to you: Visual Editor and Text Editor (HTML).

    You compose your whole post first in the Visual editor and before you publish it you switch to the HTML (Text) editor, copy all the code you find there, paste it into the Excerpt box, and publish the post. http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/excerpts/#creating-excerpts

    This will have to be done on every post.

  4. You're welcome.

  5. I'm sorry, but I have another question -- I'm new at this site!

    The Yoko theme isn't listed as a "beginnings", "title" or "thumbnails" so I believe the text should show up on other pages as it does on the full post. As it is now, the bullets are being stripped out. Here's an example link:

    How do I get the bullets back on this page to separate the items, or at least do a hard return so that each item is on a separate line?

  6. Yoko displays beginnings. It's not listed in my post because I've stopped updating my posts - see the red note in my sidebar.
