    Hi… so I figured out how to display categories using the structure:

    http://www.xxx.com/news/category/xxxx/

    But the page that displays shows the entire news articles from everything in that category. Is there a way to have it show just the excerpts and then click them to go into the individual news article?

    Thanks!

    Yes @maurice,

    That’s the default behciour of many themes, including default WordPress themes.
    You should have a look at category.php file in your theme – there should be the_excerpt() function that does just that.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    I am not a super experienced PHP coder. I can make code changes in our child theme as directed, but I am not too adept at writing changes from scratch. Do you have any advice on how to make the default here be excerpts? Is there a simple code mod that won’t affect the rest of my site?

    Thanks.
