    ... something in the code preventing this?

    I download a template to use and there isn't mus support for this. When you are in the main blog page, you only see a short summary that ends with [...] but once you click on the post, you're supposed to see the full post. It doesn't happen for me.

    Please take a look at my site:

    Click on one of the the 2nd post to go to single post page.

    There's the problem! The [...] is still there!

    I am not a php programmer and have no idea where to look for this to fix. Is it on single.php? If so, what am I looking for to fix this?

    The template came with several plug-ins. The only thing that I can think of that would affect this would be the wp-pagenavi plugin.

    The theme I found and am using is:

    But honestly, I don't think any of the plugins are causing this. I don't know, I may be wrong.....

    THANKS your help!! :)

  3. I'm going to guess that the single post template is using the_excerpt where it should be using the_content , but it's hard to say since I can't download the theme to investigate. I recommend contacting the theme vendor for support. Support should be included with the purchase, and they probably know the theme better than most of us.

    Otherwise, refer to these:

    Thanks, James! I think I have it figured out from your two links:

    I simpliy changed:

    <?php the_excerpt(); ?> to

    <?php the_content( $more_link_text, $strip_teaser, $more_file ); ?>

    on the single.php file. So far it looks good. Is there any issues that I should be aware of if I make this change?
