How to edit archive/blog page to show full posts

  • i was wondering how you can make an achive/blog page show full blog posts instead of just the title. i am using a custom theme i made myself and i dont have an archive.php file or functions.php file i just have an index.php file and a style.css file. the code i have in my page template is `<?php
    $posts_to_show = 100; //Max number of articles to display
    $debut = 0; //The first article to be displayed
    ?><?php while(have_posts()) : the_post(); ?><h2><?php the_title(); ?></h2><ul><?php
    $myposts = get_posts(“numberposts=$posts_to_show&offset=$debut”);
    foreach($myposts as $post) :
    ?><li><a href=”<?php the_permalink(); ?>”><?php the_title(); ?></a></li><?php endforeach; ?>
    </ul><?php endwhile; ?>` and you can check out what i have here. also if any one knows how to i would really like to have only like 3 or 4 posts per page and then they have to hit like a next button to go to the next page of posts. thanks for any help.

    $debut = 0; //The first article to be displayed
    ?>
    <?php while(have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <h2><?php the_title(); ?></h2><?php the_content(); ?>
    <ul>
    <?php
    $myposts = get_posts(“numberposts=$posts_to_show&offset=$debut”);
    foreach($myposts as $post) :
    ?>
    <li><a href=”<?php the_permalink(); ?>”><?php the_title(); ?></a></li>
