    Hi! I´m using oxygen theme but i dont want the pictures to be small on the main site, and i dont want that you have to click “read the article” to get the full text. Can this be fixed? So that the hole text and image is on the front page? Best / isabell

    Let’s start with the fact that the theme is performing exactly how it is designed to perform and one does not “fix’ what is not broken.

    Oxygen Theme Description http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/oxygen/ Live demo site http://oxygendemo.wordpress.com/

    In Oxygen you can either have a Home page that displays your posts or a static front page ie. a Showcase template. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/#setting-up-a-static-front-page

    Showcase page template
    When you first activate Oxygen, you’ll see your posts in a traditional blog format but if you’d like to showcase your content in an online magazine-like fashion, then you can use the Showcase Page template. …

    Sticky post thumbnails are 750 pixels wide in the featured slider
    Regular post thumbnails are 450 pixels wide

    If you don’t see the page attributes module then make sure that you don’t have it hidden in your screen options http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/
    Modules to unhide:
    Post – Likes and Shares, Format*, Categories, Tags, Excerpt, Send Trackbacks, Discussion, Comments**, Slug, Author, Revisions, Writing Helper
    Page – Likes and Shares, Page Attributes, Featured Image, Discussion, Comments**, Page Revisions, Slug, Author, Revisions, Writing Helper

    Please be aware that you cannot crop the sticky post thumbnails

    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.

    Older themes that do not have a magazine style format have full posts by default. Only the newer themes (fewer in number) have the feature of displaying excerpts only on the front page of the blog.

    You’re correct. Please be aware that you cannot crop the sticky post thumbnails.

    #1061488
