I'm an experienced php programmer, but a wordpress newbie. My site uses the theme twenty eleven. I have created some post categories, and some posts for each category. On my site, for each post category, a page has automatically been created displaying the posts for that category. So far so good.
What I would like to do now is do some customization. For example:
- For some categories, I want the full content displayed, but for others, just the synopsis.
- For some categories, I want the page to have a link to the permalink of the posts being displayed, but for others not.
- For some categories, I wish to display the post's featured image, but for others not.
How do I accomplish this?
I'm aware of the various php files, such as header.php, etc. It appears that the file that handles category pages is category.php and inside it is a loop "while ( have_posts() )". Is there one php file that I'm supposed to edit and customize to accomplish what I need? (Maybe content.php?) Or is different from this? I would be grateful for any assistance.
