Let me tell details about what I am trying to do,

I have one category call Members this category show in custom category file. and in category page show featured images with <?php the_permalink(); ?> so when I click thumbnail image it go to single.php file this is WordPress system for this Members category post I have one custom template also. which define in single.php bellow is code

get_header(); ?>
<div class="contentarea cf">
  <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    <?php the_title(); ?>
    if ( in_category( 'members' ) ) {
         get_template_part( 'content', 'members' );

    else {
        get_template_part( 'content', 'common' );
  <?php endwhile;  ?>
<?php get_footer(); ?>

so when Members post open its go to content-members.php file and show post. but now I want in this page will show all Members post not only one post. I can't figure out yet how to do that.

Using The Loop with the required arguments should list all the posts. An Example:

$temp = $wp_query;
        $type = 'post_type';
        $args = array (
        'post_type' => $type,
        'post_status' => 'publish',
        'paged' => $paged,
        'posts_per_page' => 20,
        'ignore_sticky_posts'=> 1
        $temp = $wp_query; // assign ordinal query to temp variable for later use
        $wp_query = null;
        $alt = false;
        $wp_query = new WP_Query($args);
          if ( $wp_query->have_posts() ) :
while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); 
  end while;
 $wp_query = $temp; /* This is a must to make your template work properly

I hope this helps!
