Just show preview of blog post?

    HI everyone. I am using the Skylark theme (Just changed…). I have found it to have some more features that have been useful (although as I am totally new to blogging other themes may be just as useful!).

    I am trying to find if there is a way when clicking the categories either by the drop down selection on the right or the links in the header of just showing a preview of the post rather than the entire post? If I could show a couple of lines of text that people can then choose to click on and read the whole thing if they want. It’s just as we get more and more blogs I don’t think people will actually scroll through everything but if they just saw a short preview maybe they would?

    Is that possible?


    Thanks so much

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



    Hello there,
    Whether or not just titles, tiles and excerpts, full posts, permalinked or thumbnails 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 here for a partial list of free 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/
