photos not showing in post (5 posts)

    I have worked on this for several hours now and I am hoping that someone will have an answer for me.
    When I include a photo in my post it will not show unless you click on "read more"...even if it is the only item in the post. I do not have this problem with any of my other blogs, but they are not in this theme or this version of WP.
    Also,the new theme I am using only shows a portion of each post. Is there a way to change that? I have checked "full text" in the reading settings.
    Thanks so much.

    Thanks Evita! I found this in the index.php

    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    </div>
    <p class="meta">" class="more">Read More      <?php comments_popup_link('No Comments »', '1 Comment »', '% Comments »', 'comments'); ?></p>
    </div>

    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    <div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    <h2 class="title">" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
    <p class="byline"><small><?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?> by <?php the_author() ?> <?php edit_post_link('Edit', '', ' | '); ?></small></p>
    <div class="entry">
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    </div>

    However, I am not certain what to do next.
    thanks again

    Well, for a little while the photo showed in the post...until I made another post. Not only did the first post collapse, but then the newest post shows the narrative twice.

    I made the changes below. Gosh if anyone could possibly assist, I would be so grateful!

    <div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>"><p class="meta">
    <h1 class="title">" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
    <p class="byline"><small><?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?> by <?php the_author() ?> <?php edit_post_link('Edit', '', ' | '); ?></small></p>
    <div class="entry">
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    </div>
    <p class="meta"><?php
    // Display all content, including text below more
    $more = 1;
    the_content();
    ?>" class="more">Read More      <?php comments_popup_link('No Comments »', '1 Comment »', '% Comments »', 'comments'); ?><p class="meta">
    </div>

    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    If you use <?php the_excerpt(); ?> your image will not be visible, because WP strips out all HTML-Code.
    You have to use your own excerpt ("more" on writing page in admin), or a plugin like "the-excerpt-reloading".

    It seems you are using not your own design, so it will be better you ask the author of your design. Your code appeales a bit messy.
