Support » Fixing WordPress » Posts cutting off

  • Hey there. I recently switched hosts and transferred my blog ( to the new service.

    Since doing that, my posts now stop only a few lines into them instead of using the “read more” function. I looked for the_excerpt in the theme files but I can’t find it at all.

    What could be causing this?

  • Try switching themes and see if it still happens.

    I did as you suggested and it doesn’t happen in another theme.

    What’s interesting is that I’ve had this theme for a year and it hasn’t done this until I switched.

    Have you recently updated the theme version or modified the theme? Also, depending on the theme it may be a theme option under the Appearance menu. Obviously it’s being caused by the theme though. If you have never modified the theme you can back it up, delete it, and then upload a fresh copy. Single posts are usually displayed by the single.php template. You can check that to see if it is set to display the_content or the_excerpt.

    Well, where does the the_excerpt usually show up?

    Oh, sorry. single.php Should not show the_excerpt (my mistake), it should show the_content. the_excerpt would probably be in the loop code for index.php, or home.php if your theme has a file by that name.

    Hm. What’s strange is my index.php doesn’t have the_excerpt in it when I try to find it…

    Here’s my index.php file:

    If it were there it would be in the loop section, which begins with

    <?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    Which theme is this? Have you checked for theme options under Appearance in the admin menu?

    The theme is LeetPress.

    There isn’t an option for it under the Appearance menus.

    I can’t help because it is not a free theme and I don’t own a copy of it. Your best bet is to ask in their forum at or contact their tech support if they offer that.

    If I sent you a copy, would you be interested in taking a look?

    Per that theme page, the support link is here.

    As Jonas Grumby said, we don’t support commercial themes here.

    That’s not something that will be discussed here. You purchased that theme and part of that purchase price was support. Please avail yourself of that option.

    Alrighty. Thanks for your time, Jonas.
