    I understand that it is not possible to add posts to pages so I created categories. However, the posts are showing as links on the category pages and not as posts. I am using the site as a test before converting mine. Is it possible to show the content without having to click on the link to view it? And something else, why the link reads …com/category/… I don’t want /category/ to show. Is this possible?

    Thank you!

    You’ll need to change themes. Note that very few themes display entire posts on category pages.

    The category link will ALWAYS be formatted that way.

    You can’t fix what’s not broken. You cannot edit the Archives or the Categories pages which are automatically generated by the software when you publish posts. 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. (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/
