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

'Read More' not displaying on custom category-posts-in-a-page

The WP "Read More" (<!--more-->) works on the home page and in a regular WP category page, but it doesn't work (ie. the full post is displayed) on the page template I have created that displays category posts.

I found this thread:

...which seems like the problem I'm having, but when I add $query_string. to query_posts the template stops working and displays nothing from the loop. I'm new to PHP so maybe I'm applying it incorrectly. This is what I have added before the loop:

PHP Code:
if (
is_page('news')) {
} elseif (
is_page('photos')) {
} elseif (
is_page('national-team')) {

if (
$catID) {

$paged = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1;
query_posts($query_string. "cat=$catID&paged=$paged"); makes everything from the loop disappear.

I am having a similar problem.

PHP Code:
<?PHP /* This is added in based on http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=207 to create a category post page */
query_posts('cat=13'); ?>
    <?php /* The LOOP starts here. Do this for all posts: */
while (have_posts()) : the_post(); $bfa_ata['postcount']++; ?>
I am trying to create a custom page using templates that will display a specific category. Everything works except the pagination. When I press "Older Articles", it just refreshes and shows the same posts on page 1.

Thanks for your help in advance!

Incidentally, though it didn't work before, I bashed again at all the options and this worked:

global $more;
// set $more to 0 in order to only get the first part of the post
$more = 0;

...added after the query_posts(), as suggested in the thread I linked above. I don't know why it didn't work before. I must have goofed something up. Or maybe I tried it in combination with adding $query_string. to query_posts, which did not work. My apologies for what turned out to be a redundant thread.

lknyc, your problem is different. The issue I was having was with the "Continue reading..." link that you can insert into long posts in Worpress. You are talking about older/newer links to other posts, rather than within a post. My php works for that so you might want to copy & paste it (adding the global $more; stuff above) and modify it to your own use.
