Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

[SOLVED] "Read more" on category template pages is dead

Hi folks - got a strange one...

For this particular site, almost every page comes from a custom template (to allow us to use categories as a search/CMS menu).

So, I have dozens of templates with the following after the "get header" section (the top line makes the page display categories, the remaining lines I've pasted already exist in each PHP file - hope this shows you where the new line of code is pasted):

<?php query_posts('cat=44&showposts='.get_option('posts_per_page')); ?>

<?php // If there are any posts:
if (have_posts()) : $postcount == 0; ?>
<?php if( is_category() AND function_exists('page2cat_output')) { page2cat_output($cat); } // This is for the plugin Page2Cat http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/page2cat/ ?>

Works just fine, but in this theme, it eliminates the "read more" and shows the entire post.

You can see it in action at this link: http://landalerts.com

Click on any drop-down menu and you'll get a templated category page. Even the home page is a category page (I have to use templates for this, since the page-2-cat plugin just shows post titles).

On every post, there's a "MORE" tag after the first sentence. I've tried setting up a non-template page and the "more" works fine. Any ideas?

We don't want to go with excerpts for this function, as it's one more field for people to enter, and copywriters won't be entering data on this site.

Thanks for ANY help!!! MC
