I'm building a 2.6m stud wall with a door. Is it enough to fix the top plate with one fixing at each end and one in the middle? So they'll be about 120cm apart.

I might put shelves up on the wall so it will need to take some weight, but nothing massive.

You might get by with that, but I would want a good fixing into every joist above.
