Wish to post without preview on homepage.

  1. Hi, I was wondering if I could post and have it show in it's entirety without a preview on the homepage.
    Like this example: http://pattycamacho.net/
    The current theme I am using is: FOREVER
    This is the blog I'd like help on: http://tulle4us.wordpress.com/.
    Right now, the post has a preview on the home page. I'd like to get rid of that preview and just have the posts directly on the home page that readers can scroll down.

    Does it have to do with not having a domain name?
    I cannot edit the permalink.

  3. There are two options:

    1) change themes. most don't do excerpts on the front page.

    2) click to the text editor, copy all the code, and paste that into the excerpt box below the Write post box. Update.

  4. Hi,
    I do not see the excerpt box in the post section.
    Am I missing something??
    Thanks.

  5. The Forever theme may have an active excerpt box below the post editor, so you can control the length of the excerpt displayed. If it does then this is the workaround you can use to override excerpt display on the front page. If it does have an active excerpt box below the editor box then you compose your whole post first and before you publish it you switch to the HTML (Text) editor, copy the code, paste it into the Excerpt box, and publish the post. http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/excerpts/#creating-excerpts This will have to be done on every post.

  6. Thank you! It worked.

  7. You're welcome. :)
