When I list articles on a category page, the category description with image and text, shows for each listing on the page. How can I limit having the category description only show on category page once and not with each listing?
example -

That will most likely require an edit to the loop.php file in the vertex subfolder of the theme.  If you can give a more detailed description of the results you are looking for, I might be able to give a rough idea of what changes you'll need to make; however, as per the Shape 5 Terms of Use ( custom coding is not technically covered by support, so I can't promise anything.  I am currently in the process of finishing up the release for this month as well as preparing a major patch for the framework, so I may not have a lot of time available to pick apart the loop code; I will still try to at least point you the right direction if at all possible.

when i go to a page like this, it gives me the different pages in that category, but instead of showing the pic from the individual page or text from that page, it shows the category pic and text first. then you have to click more to get info from the individual page.

here is example of individual page

also on some of the individual pages, the accordion menu on the right side chops off some of the text and links.

If you want to remove the category description from category pages, you can look in the vertex/loop.php file for the following code and remove it or comment it out:

<?php echo category_description(); ?>

I'm not sure why it's showing the category image instead of the individual post image - that seems like something that would be caused by core WP.  However; I am working on a major framework update that will include a complete overhaul of the content area, so once I get to that part, I'll see what I can do to improve customization.

Can you provide a link to a page that is having the issue with the accordion menu?  That issue shouldn't be possible.

now i don't see pages with the text on top of each other. i'll go through rest of pages today but maybe it is fixed?

when the new version of vertex comes out, do we have to ftp each folder and file in or can we do the update from backend of wordpress?

Vertex updates currently have to be done through FTP, but if you're using an ftp client like FileZilla (, you can just drag & drop all of the update files onto the FTP client instead of uploading things 1 at a time.

I'm hoping that I'll eventually be able to add an updater to Vertex admin, but that's currently low priority compared to most of the other updates I need to make.
