Switching themes

    I recently switched from the Quentin theme to the MistyLook theme and now my photos don’t show up under the catagories.

    The blog I need help with is artisticexpressions1.wordpress.com.



    It’s the way the theme was made – you have to click on “Read More..” before they show up.

    There is a little more to it than that.

    In Quentin, your whole posts appeared on the category and archive pages, but in Misty Look only the beginnings of your posts appear. That is the way those themes are designed. It has nothing to do with using the “more” tag.

    With MisyLook, you have the opportunity to write custom excerpts for your posts. On the post editor page you should have a module called “excerpts.” (If you don’t see it go to screen options and be sure that the excerpt module is visible.)

    Write your custom excerpt in the module. Note that it is an html editor so you can even include pictures and other formatting in your custome excerpts. If you don’t know html then write your excerpt in the visual editor the switch to html, copy the code and while still in the html editor, paste the code into the excerpt module. Save or update.

    Thanks so much for the helpful information. I appreciate your time. Hope you have a great day!
