    I’ve got my blog set up using the “blog” template, but I also want to have pages that show posts from another category. I assume that using an archive/category page is the way to go? If so, I would like the full content to show on the category pages, but only the excerpt on the blog page.

    I have poked around and found some snippets, but haven’t been able to get anything to work.

    Here’s the site:

    Learn More > Latest News is one of the category pages I’m referring to.

    You could do this from your functions file or make a custom template for your blog page

    Then use the SP snippets

    I don’t think I worded my question right. I want to show all content on archive pages and excerpts only on the blog page.

    I finally figured it out.

    add_action( 'genesis_before_loop', 'sk_excerpts_blog_page' );
    function sk_excerpts_blog_page() {
      if ( is_page_template( 'page_blog.php' ) ) {
    		add_filter( 'genesis_pre_get_option_content_archive', 'sk_show_excerpts' );
    	}
    }
    function sk_show_excerpts() {
    	return 'excerpts';
    }

    Thanks, now I understand what you were getting at. Is there an advantage to doing it that way versus the way I did it above?

    More efficient plus you can customize your blog page template without effecting other archives and add content before the loop in the blog page only.
