summary problem in twenty eleven theme

  1. I'm using the "twenty eleven" theme and there is a problem about "reading". I'm choosing "summary" for "For each article in a feed, show" section, but on the category pages, it still shows full text. In "twenty ten" theme, there wasn't a problem like this.

    Is it possible to see only the latest post as full text on the main page and i.e. 20 summaries on the other pages? This is exactly what i want.

    Lastly, is it possible to see the tags smaller in twenty eleven theme just like in twenty ten theme?

    Best regards,

    The setting you refer to here > Settings > Reading is for the RSS Feed for your posts only. It does not chnage what displays on the Archives, categories or Tags pages.

    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 nubler 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/

    To create excerpts in posts on the front page you must split content by inserting "the more tag".

  3. I'll try the other themes from that theme list page, thank you.

  4. And I think that "the more tag" link will be extremely helpful, thank you again for that too.
