Show summary when clicking on a category or tag

  1. Hi,
    I have the setting to show the full blog post on the main page and that's how I would like to keep it. However I would like to show only the summary of posts when a person clicks on a category or a tag to make it easier to browse older posts.
    I have searched for a solution to this but haven't found how to do this. Is it a setting I can do somewhere or is it 100% linked to the theme I'm using?

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

  2. There isn't a setting that you can use. 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/
