I am placing one Full sized entry blog post underneath my main Featured posts slider on my homepage. The post displays the first two lines and then has a “read more” button.
How can I make the FULL post display on the homepage?
I’d like to know as well! Or at least how to increase the number of text lines (number of words) in the post excerpt.
in includes/loop-index.php replace:
if(!is_single() && !is_home() && !is_front_page())
How do you make this work for a full sized blog post that is just on a regular page (one using a template with a blog component in it)?
A conditional statement for a regular page doesn’t make much sense (because you’d need to hardcode each page id). You can include another template for the blog element though. Open up includes/helper-templates.php and replace:
get_template_part( 'includes/loop', 'index' );
get_template_part( 'includes/loop', 'index2' );
Then make a copy of includes/loop-index.php, call it loop-index2.php and replace:
Actually, you might be right. I forgot that you can add widgets to specific pages – I could maybe do it that way instead of using the Blog post/sidebar method.
I was up late last night, my brain had gone runny! :O)
Well, I also have this option now too, so thanks again!
You are the man!
