Is there an easy way to get a specific category page to display excerpts with x amount of words then have a read more link to link to the full post? I've tried the advanced excerpts plugin which does what I want but i want to be able to restrict it to certain categories


Try this and place in your functions.php file:

function custom_excerpt_length( $length ) { return 35; } add_filter( 'excerpt_length', 'custom_excerpt_length', 999 );

function excerpt_more( $more ) { return sprintf( '%2$s', get_permalink( get_the_ID() ), __( 'Read More', 'textdomain' ) ); } add_filter( 'excerpt_more', 'excerpt_more' );
