    Is it possible to show full posts on certain categories while only showing excerpts on another category?

    As an example, on my site, I’d like to show excerpts for the Sleep Music News category posts. But I want to show full text posts on all other categories because the full posts on the other categories are very short and more product presentations than long articles.

    Would be great to realise that. I have premium.

    Thank you!

    Hi there,

    You should be able to use this filter:

    With this conditional tag:

    Let us know if you need help with the code 🙂

    Hi Leo, Thanks for the pointer. Wow, I think it actually works (I’m kind of proud on myself 🙂 I added this to the snippets plug in. Is that correct?

    add_filter( 'generate_show_excerpt','pp_sleep_music_news_category' );
    function pp_sleep_music_news_category( $show_excerpt )
    {
        if ( is_category( 'Sleep Music News' ))
    		return true;
    	
    	return $show_excerpt;
    }
