    Default Categories and Archives

    I started my site and have already 2 categories added.

    If I click on one of the categories on my site it redirects to the archive post fine, but it does not show the whole post but only an excerpt.

    The visitor has to click on "read more" to see the whole post.

    I would want the whole post to show, though, not just the excerpt.

    How do I do that?

    That's exactly how it should work.

    For duplicate content reasons you do not want to display full posts on your category or archive pages.

    Ok, I understand, but for this particular site, I'd like to have the full posts showing.

    How do I do that?

    in Appearance > Editor > Archive.php

    Change

    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    to:

    <?php the_content(); ?>
    I believe that will do what you wish.

    Default Content in the Right side bar fall to the bottom of page!

    I have changed it to: <?php the_content(); ?>
    Its working fine but there is a bad side effect. The entire content inside the right sidebar fall to the bottom of the page. Can you help rectify this problem?

    I have made the changeover to
    <?php the_content(); ?>
    in Archive.php

    After making the above changes, there are several URL where the contents in the right sidebar fell to the bottom of the page. I have not checked all the URL but the following are the ones not working properly:


    http://www.fashiondesignerhandbag.co...betsey-johnson
    http://www.fashiondesignerhandbag.co...ciaga-handbags
    http://www.fashiondesignerhandbag.co...hton-handbag-2

    Also for this URL: http://www.fashiondesignerhandbag.co...hton-handbag-2
    I want to get rid of the wording "Archive for the ‘Brighton Handbag’ Category." that appears on the top of the page but below the header. Can this be done?

    You have a number of issues.

    Some archives work and others don't.. the post titles that display lead to 404 pages.

    This makes me believe you not only have a permalinks issue, but those posts are the problem.

    The break in the page is due to an open tag, like a div tag or A tag.

    It would take me probably 20 minutes to explain all this, or 60 seconds to fix. If you PM me your wordpress login I can try to fix.
