So my blog is currently http://www.joegilbertphotography.co.uk/blog/ using the “delight” theme. Can anybody tell me how on earth I change it so instead of showing excerpts of posts, it just shows the entire post, one after the other, for about five posts or so, on the main landing page?

I've tried changing the_excerpt to the_content, which just makes the whole lot disappear. I've also tried asking the creator of the template with no joy.

Please help this is driving me nuts! Many thanks

Thanks Sagive,

I've tried changing every entry of excerpt to content, all successfully other than one line which makes everything vanish when I amend it in any way. You can (hopefully) see my code at:


thanks very much!

any ideas anyone? Really stuck on this! Thanks

You Should go into index.php and


the_excerpt(); //or similer


the content();

If your code looks different paste it in pastebin and share a link.

Best of luck, Sagive.
