Front page only showing excerpts, also a random post displayed at the bottom!

    My site used to show full posts, and I recall changing a setting so it would show excerpts. I need to change that back, but the option appears to be hiding from me (Forever theme)

    Also a random post is showing at the bottom of the page! Now my site looks broken, and I’ve not heard from support who I contacted before the weekend.

    Any advice greatly appreciated…

    The blog I need help with is


    No response here or from WordPress… so hopefully the fact I resolved it myself may help someone else.

    The Forever theme will show a post excerpt on the front page where there is a featured image. By removing the featured image, the front page shows the full article.

    The random post at the bottom of the front page is caused by a posts ‘format’ being set as a ‘quote’ rather than ‘standard’.

    Should I be worried at the lack of response (2 emails to support, one post here) when I was hoping to pay for a migration? I’m somewhat nervous now.



    Thanks for sharing your solutions here.



    Emailing support means it takes longer to get an answer than posting to the support forums does. Please do only one or the other.

    Staff work through all forum threads tagged for their attention and through all email support tickets in order of datestamps and timestamps – first posted first served, as would be expected.

    When bloggers keep bumping any thread thinking they are going to get service from Staff more quickly they aren’t thinking straight because that moves the timestamps forward and it takes longer to get a response. The same is true if you email more than once the date moves forward and it takes longer to get help.
