[resolved] Posts show up as excerpts, I want them in full. (8 posts)

    I've read tons, tons of other previous posts about this, but I can't fix mine.
    I want my blog posts to post in full on my home page. The website I'm building is at http://www.tvproductionguy.com

    I'm using "new gamer" theme.

    I've checked "full text" under settings, reading.

    I've looked at my Appearance, Editor. I see nothing with the word "excerpt", which others have suggested to turn to "content".

    Help?

    start by looking into index.php of your theme; review http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_excerpt

    for details, please ask in the theme's forum at https://wordpress.org/support/theme/newgamer/

    Thanks Alchymyth.

    I reposted in the theme's forum.

    the "index.php" is that located in the source code located under APPEARANCE tab, then EDITOR tab?

    Or somewhere else that I'm missing.

    Again thanks

    yes; make sure your theme is selected.

    Fixed it.

    For future lookers.
    After you go to APPEARANCE tab, then EDITOR tab. On the Right hand side of the screen, there are blue sections of your code. (THIS WAS THE MAIN PART I WAS MISSING, there are different sections.)

    Click "MAIN INDEX TEMPLATE".

    do a word search for "excerpt".
    change "the_excerpt" to "the_content"
