Can I change excerpt-only themes to full posts with custom CSS?

  1. Hi there! I just set up a new blog and picked out the Fresh & Clean theme after looking at every single other one. It's perfect, but the only problem is that I want full posts to be displayed on the front page and not just the excerpts. Is it possible to do this with the Custom Design upgrade somehow?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is kokoondaily.wordpress.com.

  2. I don't help with CSS editing so you will have to wiat for a response form Staff or another Volunteer who does help with it.

    This is the workaround you can use to override excerpt display on the front pag. The Fresh and Clean theme has an active excerpt box below the post editor. You compose your whole post first and before you publish it you switch to the HTML editor, copy the code, paste it into the Excerpt box, and publish the post. http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/excerpts/#creating-excerpts

  3. CSS can be used to adjust the appearance of things which are already on the page—you cannot change the way a theme functions such as changing excerpt-only posts to full posts using CSS.

  4. Thanks very much to you both! I will try that out, @timethief.

    The workaround works very well but you have to do it on every post you create. You're welcome. :)
