Disable "Read Full Story"

  • Is there a way to disable it so it can just show the whole entire article? I’ve tried the one a guy posted about(I searched it) and it f***** up.

  • what theme?
    a link to site?

    your theme is using the_excerpt and defaults to 1st 55 words of article
    you will need to replace this in your theme – typically index.php with the_content which let’s you display full post or cut it where you want with a “read more” link

    Tried it, it didn’t work.

    Here is the index.php file.

    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <div id=”content”>

    <?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
    <?php $count = 0; ?>
    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <div <?php post_class(‘box’) ?> id=”post-<?php the_ID(); ?>”>

    <div class=”boxcover”>
    <div class=”entry”>
    <div class=”boximage”>
    <div class=”boxtitle”>
    <h2>” rel=”bookmark” title=”Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>”><?php echo ShortenText(get_the_title()); ?></h2>
    </div>

    <?php if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) {?>
    <?php the_post_thumbnail( ‘home-thumbnail’ );?>
    <?php } else { ?>
    <img src=”<?php bloginfo(‘template_directory’); ?>/images/place.jpg” alt=”” />
    <?php } ?>

    </div>

    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>

    <div class=”clear”></div>

    </div>
    </div>

    <div class=”boxinfo”>

    <div class=”boxauthor”>Posted by <?php the_author(); ?> </div>
    <div class=”boxmore”>” title=”Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>”>Read Full Post </div>
    <div class=”boxcoms”><?php comments_popup_link(‘0’, ‘1’, ‘%’,”,” ); ?> </div>
    </div>

    </div>
    <?php if(++$counter % 2 == 0) : ?>
    <div class=”clear”></div>
    <?php endif; ?>
    <?php endwhile; ?>

    <div class=”clear”></div>
    <div id=”navigation”>
    <?php if(function_exists(‘wp_pagenavi’)) : ?>
    <?php wp_pagenavi() ?>
    <?php else : ?>
    <div class=”alignleft”><?php next_posts_link(__(‘« Older Entries’,’arclite’)) ?></div>
    <div class=”alignright”><?php previous_posts_link(__(‘Newer Entries »’,’arclite’)) ?></div>
    <div class=”clear”></div>
    <?php endif; ?>

    </div>

    <?php else : ?>

    <h1 class=”title”>Not Found</h1>
    <p>Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn’t here.</p>

    <?php endif; ?>

    </div>

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    If I replace it with the_content it will just put the full story on top of the excerpt and mess up the whole page.

    sacred term
    you have messed up some things in the editing
    replace the current index.php with a fresh one from the theme zip
    then post the fresh one and someone can show you where to replace stuff

    sacred term

    @sacred-term

    Here is the default one,

    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <div id=”content”>

    <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . ‘/slide.php’); ?>

    <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . ‘/ad1.php’); ?>

    <?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
    <?php $count = 0; ?>
    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    <div <?php post_class(‘box’) ?> id=”post-<?php the_ID(); ?>”>

    <div class=”boxcover”>
    <div class=”entry”>
    <div class=”boximage”>
    <div class=”boxtitle”>
    <h2>” rel=”bookmark” title=”Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>”><?php echo ShortenText(get_the_title()); ?></h2>
    </div>

    <?php if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) {?>
    <?php the_post_thumbnail( ‘home-thumbnail’ );?>
    <?php } else { ?>
    <img src=”<?php bloginfo(‘template_directory’); ?>/images/place.jpg” alt=”” />
    <?php } ?>

    </div>

    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>

    <div class=”clear”></div>

    </div>
    </div>

    <div class=”boxinfo”>

    <div class=”boxauthor”>Posted by <?php the_author(); ?> </div>
    <div class=”boxmore”>” title=”Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>”>Read Full Post </div>
    <div class=”boxcoms”><?php comments_popup_link(‘0’, ‘1’, ‘%’,”,” ); ?> </div>
    </div>

    </div>
    <?php if(++$counter % 2 == 0) : ?>
    <div class=”clear”></div>
    <?php endif; ?>
    <?php endwhile; ?>

    <div class=”clear”></div>
    <div id=”navigation”>
    <?php if(function_exists(‘wp_pagenavi’)) : ?>
    <?php wp_pagenavi() ?>
    <?php else : ?>
    <div class=”alignleft”><?php next_posts_link(__(‘« Older Entries’,’arclite’)) ?></div>
    <div class=”alignright”><?php previous_posts_link(__(‘Newer Entries »’,’arclite’)) ?></div>
    <div class=”clear”></div>
    <?php endif; ?>

    </div>

    <?php else : ?>

    <h1 class=”title”>Not Found</h1>
    <p>Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn’t here.</p>

    <?php endif; ?>

    </div>

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    try replacing <?php the_excerpt(); ?> with <?php the_content(); ?>

    Hope that helps you

    I have tried this… All it does is put the full story over the excerpt and messes up the whole page.

    Changing excerpt to content didn’t work. What can we do?

    Here is the default index.php,

    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <div id=”content”>

    <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . ‘/slide.php’); ?>

    <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . ‘/ad1.php’); ?>

    <?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
    <?php $count = 0; ?>
    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    <div <?php post_class(‘box’) ?> id=”post-<?php the_ID(); ?>”>

    <div class=”boxcover”>
    <div class=”entry”>
    <div class=”boximage”>
    <div class=”boxtitle”>
    <h2>” rel=”bookmark” title=”Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>”><?php echo ShortenText(get_the_title()); ?></h2>
    </div>

    <?php if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) {?>
    <?php the_post_thumbnail( ‘home-thumbnail’ );?>
    <?php } else { ?>
    <img src=”<?php bloginfo(‘template_directory’); ?>/images/place.jpg” alt=”” />
    <?php } ?>

    </div>

    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>

    <div class=”clear”></div>

    </div>
    </div>

    <div class=”boxinfo”>

    <div class=”boxauthor”>Posted by <?php the_author(); ?> </div>
    <div class=”boxmore”>” title=”Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>”>Read Full Post </div>
    <div class=”boxcoms”><?php comments_popup_link(‘0’, ‘1’, ‘%’,”,” ); ?> </div>
    </div>

    </div>
    <?php if(++$counter % 2 == 0) : ?>
    <div class=”clear”></div>
    <?php endif; ?>
    <?php endwhile; ?>

    <div class=”clear”></div>
    <div id=”navigation”>
    <?php if(function_exists(‘wp_pagenavi’)) : ?>
    <?php wp_pagenavi() ?>
    <?php else : ?>
    <div class=”alignleft”><?php next_posts_link(__(‘« Older Entries’,’arclite’)) ?></div>
    <div class=”alignright”><?php previous_posts_link(__(‘Newer Entries »’,’arclite’)) ?></div>
    <div class=”clear”></div>
    <?php endif; ?>

    </div>

    <?php else : ?>

    <h1 class=”title”>Not Found</h1>
    <p>Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn’t here.</p>

    <?php endif; ?>

    </div>

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    <?php get_footer(); ?>
