Simple Catch
How to Have Whole Posts Show Up on Front Page (5 posts)

    The link to my blog:

    http://www.freshthrift.com

    How do I make the whole post show up, instead of several posts with a few lines?

  2. If you look at your theme files, content.php, on line #32, you'll see:

    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>

    you can change that to

    <?php the_content(); ?>

    Now if you do this and there's a theme update you'll lose your changes, so it would be best to make a child theme.

    Thank you Christine,

    this solution worked very well to get the main picture with each blog post to show up on the main page. However is there a way to still only have an excerpt but still have the picture show up?

    I am wondering the same thing.

    Christine, I tried the above suggestion, and now my blog is showing full posts on the front page, but when the link to that post is clicked, the sidebar still shows up.

    Can I remove sidebars from invidiual posts, and keep it on the main page?

    Thanks for your help!!
