How to Show Post Excerpts on Category Page?

There’s nothing much you have to do except replacing a line of code from archives.php of your theme file.I’ll not beat about the bush or explain more about the codes in Archives.php here. Here’s a simple code to get things done.

Let’s do this

  • Open Archives.php and find this line of code in it.
<?php the_content(__(‘Continue Reading…’));?>
  • This calls the content of the post and adds “Continue Reading…” at the end. Now for showing excerpts. You can replace this whole line with
<?php the_excerpt() ?>
