    I use wordpress 2.8 (Will not upgrade because several scripts will only run on this particular version and most people won’t help with upgrading the plugins without charging even though I make no money and work day and night for free).

    I am needing help with making the category posts like like this instead of showing the show post cascading I like for all searches and category pages to look like this

    Category 1:

    My example article 1

    Description: This article means so and so 12343567

    My example article 2:

    Description: wskewiejkierjfjkekkekekekkrke

    and the titles are the links that goto the posts. That way this prevents googles double content penalty and it looks more presentable and professional. I saw several wordpress blog hosters turn their categories into categories with shortened titles and listing limited words but not showing each page of that category. See what I am getting at:

    like this example:

    http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/1347/examplecat.jpg please keep this link as it explains better then I could ever show in words of what I am wanting to do to modify the blog theme or use a plugin that does this type of thing.

    Also this next help request is separate because I also want to make it where each category page shows a different image so that people will know what category they are in like a logo change or extra image for different categories.

    I hope you can help me with stuff like this.

    I cannot give out my blog address because it will ruin any chances of getting help because it is a political blog with my view points, enough said.

    I will tell you I am using revolution church theme and modified it but haven’t do that to the category pages.

    Allo I want to know is how to convert the category long pages to short links using linked titles and descriptions and not showing all the content from the post.
