[resolved] Expanding post excerpts in Modularity Lite (4 posts)

    I've been trying to figure out how to expand the post excerpt length limit on my blog (or, ideally, to do away with it entirely), but I'm not sure what to look for in the code...or even what code to look at. I'm using Modularity Lite. My blog is here:
    http://xoxobra.com/blog/

    Only the latest post shows up in its entirety, but the older posts have been chopped, which I don't like. I want all the posts to show up in full on the front page, like on this guys blog with the same theme:
    http://christopherdelatorre.com/

    Suggestions please!

    look for 'the_excerpt()' in the code; replace it with 'the_content()';

    in index.php (dependant on the theme)

    check the codex for these functions.

    Have a look in your admin area under settings/ readings:

    Thanks for the tips!
    I actually finally found my answer via this older thread:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/show-full-posts-on-main-page?replies=15

    ...which I found after actually searching the forum (oops!). I somehow missed the search feature on the main page before I made this thread. Sorry for clogging up the board!
