Ive searched the net but cant seem to find anything remotely upto date, think the latest posting I found was 3yrs ago so before I give those options a try I just wanted to ask here incase things have updated since then, I expect so

    Hi. You have probably found around on the net that you can swap the_content for the_excerpt to achieve this. If not here's how to do it; open up the theme file that displays category posts(usually archive.php), do a search and replace on "the_content" replacing with "the_exceprt" without quotes of course. You should then be good to go. Good luck.

    Thanks Mike, That was the option I was reading in the older posts I found and was wondering if it was still relevant...

    I ended up going with 'more' tag option when editing the post itself was the easiest way to do this and it also allows me to control exactly where each post cuts off

    Good choice, it's pretty flexible that way.
