    Can I have my category and archive widgets link to lists of posts under those category/month instead of full posts?

    My posts tend to be longer so a reader following either link will just get the most recent post in that category/month, rather than a list of titles.

    Hope I made that clear.

    Thanks.

    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/

    I’m sorry, I read both of those and couldn’t find my answer so I must not be asking the question correctly.

    When readers follow either my category or my archive, they get a full post of the most recent post for that category or month. I want them to see a list of all posts available in the month or category.

    How do I do that?

    Thank you.

    They way each theme displays on the Archives and Categories pages either full posts, just titles or thumbnails is coded into the theme in question.
