Hi, guys!

Is there a way to make the posts from a given category always show the complete post instead of the excerpt, while all others categories showing the excerpt? I want to do this in the home and all other pages, not only in the given category page.

Thanks!

Ok, an update.

I know I have to insert an 'if' statement into the loop, that will check if the post is from the given category.

My question is: should I edit the index.php (and exactly where I could put this) or I can use this if into the loop options in ATO?

Thanks!

you will want to edit bfa_postparts.php and look at the 'function bfa_post_bodycopy'

I am testing the following in the loop section in Atahualpa options:

Just below the line
PHP Code:
<div class="<?php echo ( is_page() ? 'page ' '' ) . $odd_or_even ' post" id="post-'the_ID(); ?>">
<?php ?>
I inserted the following:
PHP Code:
<?php // make posts from category 49 always Full
$cat_loop get_the_category(get_the_ID());
$cat_loop_zero $cat_loop[0]->cat_ID;
if (
$cat_loop_zero == 49) {
$bfa_ata[excerpts_home] = 'Full Posts'; } ?>
Then, just before the closing </div>:
PHP Code:
<?php $bfa_ata[excerpts_home] = 'Only Excerpts'?>
My "Loop" section for ATO is then:

PHP Code:
<?php /* Post Container starts here */
if ( function_exists('post_class') ) { ?>
<div <?php if ( is_page() ) { post_class('post'); } else { post_class("$odd_or_even"); } ?> id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
<?php } else { ?>
<div class="<?php echo ( is_page() ? 'page ' '' ) . $odd_or_even ' post" id="post-'the_ID(); ?>">
<?php ?>

<?php // make posts from category 49 always Full
$cat_loop get_the_category(get_the_ID());
$cat_loop_zero $cat_loop[0]->cat_ID;
if (
$cat_loop_zero == 49) {
$bfa_ata[excerpts_home] = 'Full Posts'; } ?>

<?php bfa_post_kicker('<div class="post-kicker"><?php get_cat_icon(); ?>','</div>'); ?>
<?php bfa_post_headline
('<div class="post-headline">','</div>'); ?>

<?php bfa_post_byline('<div class="post-byline">','</div>'); ?>
<?php bfa_post_bodycopy
('<div class="post-bodycopy clearfix">','</div>'); ?>

<?php bfa_post_pagination('<p class="post-pagination"><strong>'.__('Pages:','atahualpa').'</strong>','</p>'); ?>

<?php bfa_post_footer('<div class="post-footer">','</div>'); ?>

<?php $bfa_ata[excerpts_home] = 'Only Excerpts'?>
</div><!-- / Post -->
It seems to work (it's not in the production server yet, but working in my testing environment), and I don't need to mess with the theme's files.

Anything wrong with this approach?

Hi,

Did this code work in the end?

I am attempting to due the same thing. I'm basically treating a "news" category page as separate to the rest of the blog, and I want to show full posts on this category page while the rest of the blog displays excerpts. I had a look at the code above and as best I can tell bfa_post_parts.php is perhaps different in newer versions of Atahualpa.

I could really use help to set up showing full posts in this category. I'm a bit of a noob/newb, I don't know much about php and I don't even have FTP access for the site I'm working on, so if I cause a parse error I'm in real trouble.

Thanks.

Another option to editing the theme files is to use the List Category Posts plugin which uses a shortcode with attributes you can set to show a particular category and full posts or excerpts or just about anything you want.

if you don't know what you are doing and don't have FTP access, you should not touch the files

Larry,
I don't understand how List Category Posts might work for me in this case.
I too am trying to make The "category" page for a given category display the entire post filed under that category. (I am using categories as navigation and there is only one post associated with this category)
But, when I have used List Category Posts before on a different site, it has been on a proper PAGE and I used it to pull in posts in a given category. I can't imagine how it is applicable here.

So I want to do what the OP wants to do, use excerpts on most category pages and if there is only one post in a given category, have that show up as a full post on the category page.

TIA

I know of no way to have category pages with only one post shoe the complete post. That would require some programing. I read this post fast and didn't clearly understand the need.
