WordPress is available as a free download from their website. It is an open source software and has several applications. It can be used as a blog , a content management system and even an ecommerce website. WordPress in general has been designed to be able to be used by people with little or no programming knowledge at all.
Keeping that in mind this article has been designed so that it can be helpful to those setting out to make their own blogs. In addition to that there are several people who already have a WordPress website and a floundering as to how to accomplish the simple task of converting their page with only excerpts in to a page which shows the full post. This article is for them as well.
WordPress posts can be displayed in full or partially as per the requirement. A short post summary termed as the WordPress excerpt is usually displayed on the first page and sometimes on inner template pages as well. Thus if you do have the need to display the full post instead of just the excerpt you will need to follow the simple steps mentioned below:
Your first need to detect which page the post summary is on. If it is on the home page then it is likely you may need to modify the index.php page. While if it is on one of the inner pages it is likely that it is a customised page, for which you would need to login to the admin and find the page in question via the editor provided.
Assuming it is the home page you are dealing with, you will need to login to your web server via FTP.
Navigate to your theme directory and download the index.php file.
Edit this file in your favourite editor.
You need to search for the text ‘the_excerpt’ in the content and replace it with the text ‘the_content’ and save the file.
Now upload the file back to the server and refresh your browser.
Additionally you can also remove the read more link by commenting it out.
These are fairly simple instructions provided above to be able to accomplish the task. But if you are not a IT Savvy person and have limited knowledge of dealing with similar applications then you may be better off hiring a WordPress Web Developer to do the job.
