    Hi Friends, really sorry for bothering you again with the same topic.
    Please forgive me about this.

    I was examining the suggestion of Peter (Thanks for the Yigit’s assistance) and it seems only “blog-grid” has effect, other ones seem doesn’t have any effect over the layout of the “Archives” pages. Please can you clarify this?

    single-big
    single-small
    multi-big

    Wish you the very best,
    Bedros

    Hey Bedros!

    Thank you for visiting the support forum!

    The filter is working when I test it. Please try this:

    add_filter('avf_blog_style','avia_change_archive_blog_layout', 10, 2); 
    function avia_change_archive_blog_layout($layout, $context){
    if($context == 'archive') $layout = 'single-small';
    return $layout;
    }

    Cheers!
    Ismael

    Hmmm, this is very interesting ; it doesn’t work on me.
    Only “blog-grid” type takes effect, and others don’t, what could be the reason?

    Thanks very much for all.
    Kind Regards,
    Bedros

    Hi!

    We’ll fix this bug with the next version. For a quick fix open up archive.php and replace:

    
                        $blog_layout = apply_filters('avf_blog_style', avia_get_option('blog_style','multi-big'), 'archive');
                       if($blog_layout == 'blog-grid')
    

    with

    
                       $avia_config['blog_style'] = apply_filters('avf_blog_style', avia_get_option('blog_style','multi-big'), 'archive');
                      if($avia_config['blog_style'] == 'blog-grid')
    

    Cheers!
    Peter

    Hi friends, just tried the “fix” and it works but, actually it doesn’t “shorten” the text content when I use any of the following three options.

    single-big
    single-small
    multi-big

    It seems only the “blog-grid” displays the text content shortened. The three above don’t shorten the text, they only change the layout a little bit, according to the size of the featured image of blog post.

    It would be absolutely far more UserFriendly if visitors see shortened text content for each post in the Category ARCHIVES ; like the image below:

    Shortened text content is far better for a smoother user-experience.

    If you consider a content rich website with 2000-3000 words long articles, then it would be extremely hard for a visitor to explore a category with the current structure within category ARCHIVEs

    I would really appreciate it if you would consider this point for the next update.
    Please let me know what do you think about this.
    Thanks for all,
    Wish you the very best ;
    Kind Regards,
    Bdros.

    Hi!

    Thank you for the update.

    The filter is actually working on my end. Testing on Enfold 2.8.1, WP 3.9.1. Anyway, please post the login details here and set it as a private reply. We would like to check it.

    Cheers!

    Hi Ismael;
    Yes, the filtering works BUT, Are you able to see category ARCHIVES like the image below? With the TEXT SHORTENED? ( please let me know ; because that’s the way I want to display them, and this is the best option for a user-friendly interface. As I have said previously, If the category’s posts are 2000-3000 words length, it would be frustrating for a user to explore a category’s posts.)

    I am using the latest WORDPRESS and latest ENFOLD, but on the category ARCHIVES it doesn’t shorten the text content, which I want to do.

    With the current structure, “blog-grid” is the only type that shortens the text while displaying category archives. The other options should behave like that way too: (“single-big” , “single-small” , “multi-big”)

    I hope I was able to make myself clear.
    Please let me know.
    thanks very much for your patience and understanding.

    A category archive

    Hey Dear Bedros!

    This is how it looks on my local installation – http://i.imgur.com/CnYs46o.png
    Do you mind posting temporary admin login here so we can look into it?

    Best regards,

    Hey!

    Thank you for the access.

    What blog style are you planning to use? Please duplicate the includes folder on the child theme then place the loop-index.php. Edit the file, look for this code:

    echo '<div class="entry-content" '.avia_markup_helper(array('context' => 'entry_content','echo'=>false)).'>';
                echo $content;
                echo '</div>';

    Replace it with this:

    echo '<div class="entry-content" '.avia_markup_helper(array('context' => 'entry_content','echo'=>false)).'>';
                if(!is_archive()){
                echo $content;
    			} else {
    			$excerpt = the_excerpt(); 
    			echo $excerpt.'<a href="'.get_permalink().'" class="more-link">'.__('Read more','avia_framework').'<span class="more-link-arrow">  &rarr;</span></a>';
    			}
                echo '</div>';

    Best regards,
    Ismael

    Hi, thanks very much for the code, Ismael ; works great. :)
    Now it displays 4 posts for each category on ARCHIVES pages.
    How can I control the number of posts displayed in each page?

    Thanks in advance, and thanks for all your patience ;wish you the very best, Yigit, Josue, Peter, and Ismael.
    Kind Regards,
    Bedros

    Hey Bedros!

    Please add following code to Functions.php file as well and change 2 to needed number

    add_action( 'pre_get_posts',  'set_posts_per_page'  );
    function set_posts_per_page( $query ) {
    
      global $wp_the_query;
    
      if ( ( ! is_admin() ) && ( $query === $wp_the_query ) && ( $query->is_archive() ) ) {
        $query->set( 'posts_per_page', 2 );
      }
    
      return $query;
    }

    Regards,
    Yigit
