I recently started a new WP blog (3.0.3) and came across a rather content killing feature.... they only show excerpts of your content when clicking through Categories, Tags, and even the Archive. This would not be so bad if they actually hinted at the missing content, but in many cases they do not, especially when there are images involved.

The fix for this is pretty simple...

edit loop.php; find:
<?php if ( is_archive() || is_search() ) : // Display excerpts for archives and search. ?>
(this occurs twice)
change both occurances to:
<?php if ( is_search() ) : // Display excerpts for search. ?>
this still leaves the search results as excerpts.
Which is the answer given to me on the WP forums by an outstanding member named alchymyth.

It was also suggested that befre that is done I create a child skin of the default TwentyTen theme so that when it comes time to upgrade I have the changes at hand... but I forgot to do that, so meh...

Either way, this only takes a few moments of time...

I griped on the WP site and said this SHOULD be an option, and it does seem that many others do agree...so with luck, this is only a temp fix
