    Hello Tom,

    I would like to know how can I change the Generatepress-theme, that it only shows excerpts on category pages.

    Also I have read that the standard WordPress excerpt only contains 55 words. How to change that so more words are displayed and pictures and also a “read more”-link.

    Thank you in advance.

    Kind regards,

    Hi there,

    First, go to “Customize > Blog > Blog Content” and set it to show full posts.

    Then you can add this PHP to make it show an excerpt within categories:

    add_filter( 'generate_show_excerpt','generate_show_excerpt_categories' );
    function generate_show_excerpt_categories( $show_excerpt )
        if ( is_category() ) {
            return true;
        return $show_excerpt;

    Adding PHP:

    If you have the Blog add-on you can change the excerpt length in “Customize > Blog > Blog Content”.

    Let me know 🙂
