    How do I show more of my post (including photo) on the front page of my blog? Right now, only the title and a few sentences of the post are showing.

  2. In your child theme, what you need to do is make a copy of the parent index.php and edit the part where it has <?php the_excerpt(); ?> and change it to <?php the_content();?>

    I'm guessing that your theme simple-catch has the loop in the index.php. The loop may be in a loop.php file though.. not sure.

    Once you have changed the excerpt to the content, the whole blog content will appear on your home page. You can then manually use a "more" tag in each individual post if you want.
