    Hi, I am new to WordPress. I have just posted some items into a new blog. I wish to see the full post on the main blog page but only a fraction of the posts visible. What to do to make it fully visible.

    In the settings/Reading I have set ful text ‘For each article in a feed, show’ option.

    Blog: http://thenewshorebirds.wordpress.com/

    Please advice.

    Best, Szimi

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

    These days not every theme is coded to display full posts on the front page of blogs. If the theme is designed to display only beginnings of posts on the front page of the blog and has an active excerpt box below the editor box that means you can use it to override the display on the front page. On any theme with an active excerpt box you can use this workaround to have full posts on the front page.

    You compose your whole post first and before you publish it you switch to the HTML (Text) editor, copy all the code, paste it into the Excerpt box below the posts editor, and publish the post. http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/excerpts/#creating-excerpts

    If you do not see an excerpt box then go to screen options on the top right hand corner of your Admin page and include:
    Post – Likes and Shares, Format*, Categories, Tags, Excerpt, Send Trackbacks, Discussion, Comments**, Slug, Author, Revisions, Writing Helper

    P.S. On themes that do have an active excerpt function, the workaround works very well but you have to do it on every post you create.

    Btw, the theme was Oxygen which I liked. :)

    Not sure I can do it. I know nothing about coding. :))
    Thanks for your feedback and support. Much appreciated!
