    I would like to have my category and tag archives show only titles, author and date.

    Is there a way to accomplish this via custom php or something? I also notice that there is no back and forward navigation once one clicks through an excerpt.

    Any tips or references would be appreciated.

    Can you post a link to one of your archive pages please.

    Thanks for the reply, Brad. This is how my category pages presently look on my live site. I’d like to replicate that. This is how they are on my test site, i.e. same layout as blog page.

    You can do all this using the Genesis Simple Edits plugin be adding or removing shortcodes for posts meta and post info data like tags, categories, author and date.

    and the Genesis > Theme Settings > Content Archives.

    Select display content and 0 for the character limit.

    That didn’t work. Perhaps the php I’m using to have two full posts and 4 excerpts (incl “read the full article”) on blog is interfering with the plugin. I’ve been going round in circles on this for over a month.

    In full. what I want is:

    Two full posts on the blog homepage + 4 excerpts
    Just titles, date, and number of comments on category and tag archives
    styled excerpts, i.e. smaller font.

    In other words, what my site has presently. Hoping for a non-plugin solution.

    No plugin. The one you suggested had no effect.

    The only php affecting blog output presently is this:

    /** Full Content For Features */
    function be_full_content_for_features( $option ) {
    if( in_array( ‘feature’, get_post_class() ) )
    $option = ‘full';

    return $option;
    }
    add_filter( ‘genesis_pre_get_option_content_archive’, ‘be_full_content_for_features’ );

    You’ll need some custom coding for this if you want your archives to be different from your blog page.

    Yes, I know. That’s what I’m trying to find out how to do.
