TOC or recent posts per category in category view

  1. Hi,
    I am using categories to let readers view what is under this category. Now, when they click e.g. Articles, there is four long posts. They need to scroll a lot.

    It would be extremely helpful to
    a) update the recent posts to recent posts in this category, add an option in the widget parameters
    b) have a new widget for this

    Can you suggest a workaround?

    Best Wishes

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

  2. The site linked to your name is not a WordPress.com blog and we won't be able to help you with that. If you have a WP.com blog, please change the link to reflect it so we can see the blog.

  3. Sorry, did I provide a wrong link... this is what I ment.

    aritikka.wordpress.com

  4. Workaround: links to recent posts per category as unordered lists in one or multiple text widgets. Drawback: must be manually updated.

    To avoid scrolling in category pages, you can use the read-more tag in your posts:

    Or you can switch to a theme that displays (or can be made to display) beginnings or titles in category pages - see here, first two columns plus end of note 3:
