    Okay. I’m customizing the “Pretty Young Thing” child theme. And I cannot for the life of me, figure out how to make the full post show. I’ve tried to use the settings in the genesis themework, but it didn’t do anything.

    Here’s the link: http://thedesignergirl.net/asquaredlife/

    I don’t want the [continue reading] link. I want the full post to show on the blog.

    Any ideas?

    Hi,
    I don’t know the PYT theme too well, but…

    Did you go to Genesis… Theme Settings…  and then under “Content Archives”, chose “Display Post Content”?

    I think you might have, based on what you said…. if that doesn’t work, unfortunately some template changes might be needed.  These custom themes sometimes have special loops.  Also, if there are any items in the Genesis menu specific to Pretty Young Thing, I’d look there, too.

    Hope that helps,

    Dave

    Dave-

    Thanks for the response. I’ve already tried that, but it did nothing, there’s still the [continue reading] on every post. And there’s nothing in the genesis menu that’s specific to the theme, aside from the color palette (which I manually edited in the css).

    I suppose I could email support, and ask. Unless anyone has other ideas.

    Again, thank you.

    Ah, I wondered if that might be the case.  Any Pretty Theme geeks, viewing this, by chance?  :-)

    One question would be: if you changed to “Display Post Content”, did that alter your non-Home pages at all, such as any Archive pages?   I doubt it, based on what you said, but if so, then the answer would probably be found in a homepage template, which would be home.php, and that would mean some theme file hacking required.

    In your My Studiopress section for downloads, you should see a “Get Started” section that may shine a lot on this.  But that’s boilerplate advice.  :-)   Yes, maybe try asking support directly.

    Good luck.

    you’re smart. it has to do with the home.php

    there’s something about a “loop” in there. now to try and get rid of it.

    :-)

    Yes, SO many premium themes from any company have a special Home template.  So it’s a “usual suspect”.

    So apparently some programming required.  If you’re going to tackle it, you may bear fruit by knowing the difference between the_excerpt vs. the_content.  Unless the programmer did something even more specific and loop-related, which is very possible.  If you’re able to get it going the way you like with the above, be sure to back up your work…. otherwise, when you install a theme update, it will knock out your carefully done changes!

    yeah… neither of those codes/snippets are even IN the home.php or functions.php files.

    i’m emailing support before i pull my hair out.

    thank you so so much for your help. coding is NOT my forte, i’m a graphic designer. i can make anything look pretty, but when it comes to actual like, big coding? not great. i’m trying to teach myself. but there are times when i want to cry.

    so yeah. thank you thank you thank you. i do appreciate it.

    Great!

    Though PHP code can be scary, for some things a fix or modification can go very quickly if you get a coder in there, or advice from coders.

    Hi,

    I am trying to do the same thing where I would like to display the full posts on the home page. Can you post the php code that you used and the file that was modified?

    Thanks.
