    Hi!

    Everything was fine and dandy with my Blog: http://simonsblogpark.com/personal/ but then this new update came out 1.1.1 and all of a sudden every post of mine is visible in full-length on my homepage before that they were cut in half and you had to click on the title to read it. That was way better. Is there a way to get back to the previous version: HELP! You are ruining my life!

    I did not do any custom changes with it, that's how the tastefully done original theme was. A preview of every post and then click trough to the full post with comments and now everything is all there laid out on the homepage, nobody will click on them anymore and nobody will comment. Is this a bug or as this intentional on the developer's part?

    should I just simply switch to a different theme? IS there a theme that looks like Infoist version 1.0.0 I really love this theme I really don't want to switch but If I have to could you recommend one similar.

    I use WordPress 3.5 and I use a few plugins but I deactivated them all and it still looks the same.

    The layout changed with the introduction of version 1.1.

    From the changelog: http://themes.trac.wordpress.org/browser/infoist/1.1.1/changelog.txt - See line 12

    You'll find a copy of this file in the infoist theme directory located on your web space as well.

    You may also want to read the forum welcome. It'll make thinks go smoother in the future if you have a real issue. Specifically: use of inappropriate language and bumping could affect the nature of the replies you get in the future.

    [afterthought] Here's how to put it back the way you like it. Open /wp-content/themes/infoist/content.php and find line 29

    Change this;

    <?php the_content( __( 'Continue reading <span class="meta-nav">→</span>', 'framework' ) ); ?>

    To this;

    <?php the_excerpt( __( 'Continue reading <span class="meta-nav">→</span>', 'framework' ) ); ?>

    That should restore the blog entries to they way they were in version 1.0

    Hey ClaytonJames!

    Thanks a million you are a life-saver. I'm sorry about the cold bumping and inappropriate language I just panicked a little yesterday it was late at night and I have so little time to write for my Blog. I was writing and all of a sudden everything turned to hell and instead of taking being able to write I had to deal with it and I was tired and didn't want to do it at all. I'm sorry.

    This does not work and there is no such line in the content.php:

    <?php the_excerpt( __( 'Continue reading <span class="meta-nav">→</span>', 'framework' ) ); ?>

    This works however:

    <?php the_excerpt( __( 'Continue reading <span class="meta-nav">&rarr;</span>', 'framework' ) ); ?>

    Thank you!

    You're welcome! Glad you got it working okay again. I think it looks much nicer with the excerpts. Very clean and well organized!
