    The Source Code
    Hi guys,
    because I've been trying to do this for few hours I think it would be nice to share with you how to do it in no time.

    So, if you want to show only post titles in category and not all the post content:

    1. Go to the folder of template you're actually using.
    2. Open the file archive.php
    3. Find this:
    [COLOR=#ffffff][FONT=Courier New]<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>[/FONT][/COLOR]
    4. Then remove everything what is after this and before the end of the cycle. (Image below)
    5. Now replace the removed code with this:
    [COLOR=#ffffff][FONT=Courier New]<?php $temp_category = single_cat_title('',false); if (!empty($temp_category)){ // give index ?>[/FONT]
    [FONT=Courier New]<h1><?php single_cat_title(); ?></h1>[/FONT]
    [FONT=Courier New]<p><?php echo(category_description(the_category_ID(false))); ?></p>[/FONT]
    [FONT=Courier New]<?php if ($posts) : foreach ($posts as $post) : start_wp(); ?>[/FONT]
    [FONT=Courier New]<li><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></li><br>[/FONT]
    [FONT=Courier New]<?php endforeach; else: ?>[/FONT]
    [FONT=Courier New]<p><?php _e('Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.'); ?></p>[/FONT]
    [FONT=Courier New]<?php endif; ?>[/FONT]
    [FONT=Courier New]<?php }else{ // give details or single post ?>[/FONT]
    [FONT=Courier New]...... code for normal post overview[/FONT]
    [FONT=Courier New]<?php } ?>[/FONT][/COLOR]
    It will look like this:


    Done. Mission completed. :D
    Now upload it to the template folder on your server.

    I'm not author of the code. But hey, it took me ages to find it.
