ChaoticSoul - Showing Post Pictures (5 posts)

    I have installed ChaoticSoul theme, and imported old typepad posts, and as is the most recent post shows the text and photos in full. BUT (bummer) the historic posts only show text/title, and I have to click on them to see the full post with photos. I tried a new test post, and teh same thing happened. I'm hoping to get the 10 most recent posts to show in full (without having to click and open). It works this way on my ChaoticSoul theme via wordpress.com, but not via my same blog with wordpress.org. Any tips on how to adjust the code?


    How I want it to look:

    It's the original design (on wp.com it has been modified).
    There are two Loops: one for the forst post using the_content and the second one for the rest using the_excerpt.
    You will have to replace the_excerpt with the_content.

    [although having a zillion pictures on the entry page is scaring away any decent visitor; it takes too long time to download even on a fast cable connection - just my $0.02]

    Thanks moshu for the quick feedback. Much appreciated. I ended up changing ('showposts=1'); to ('showposts=5'); in the main index.

    This seemed to solve my problem. ? ?

    Thanks too for the zillion pictures feedback! I agree. This being a wedding/portrait/life photoblog, I tend to usually only include 5-7 images per post.

    I disagree....we are using this as a testimonials page for our website and mine opens fine with all the pictures.

    I have the same problem. It worked fine when I am using the free WordPress hosted blog above. However, on my own domain hosted with the WordPress install, I am getting the picture"less" posts. I am going to try what you did above.
