    Hi,
    How do I display full text posts instead of excerpts?

    Also for some reason my image thumbnails are not appearing in my excerpts.

    My site: http://www.franklinenv.com

    Thanks!

    Also is there a way to add an active widget to the top right sidebar? I want to add social media links there.

    Hi Matthew,

    If you want to display full posts instead of excerpts you'll need to
    1. Make a child theme
    2. modify the content.php file.

    On line #18, change <?php the_excerpt(); ?> to <?php the_content(); ?>

    For your image thumbnails, are you adding featured images to each posts?

    For the right sidebar, there is no right sidebar but only a fat footer. This theme is a single column theme. If you wanted a sidebar, you would need to modify more php in your child theme. It's possible, but would require a bit of work.

    Thank you that helps. I was not adding featured images, simply inserting them into the post. So that solves that.

    Instead of a right sidebar, do you know of any good social media plugins that would allow me to have links for people to follow my blog, facebook, twitter, etc.?
