Yes, the homepage can show whatever you want it to.
First, look through your theme's files to figure out what file specifically is being used for the homepage. Sometimes it is
home.php; other times
front-page.php. (If your theme shows a static Page, it can also be other templates - but it doesn't sound like that's the case here.) Sometimes the file that controls the homepage includes a different file using
Once you determine which file is being used, you can create a Child Theme:
Create a new folder in
Create a new
style.css file inside the folder and include at a minimum this comment:
/* Theme Name: WPSE Child Template: nameofparenttheme */
You'll have to sub in "nameofparenttheme" with your actual theme. For example, if you are using the Twenty Fifteen theme as the parent, "twentyfifteen" is the template name. This tells WordPress "this is a child theme - if any files are missing here, look in the parent theme for them."
Keep in mind that if you are editing a template part, that will also affect other pages - wherever else that template part is called. So, if you only want to show the full post on the homepage and not elsewhere, you may instead want to copy
home.php (the main file, not the
get_template_part() and just replace the
get_template_part() portion with your own code to format the post(s) however you want, including wrapper HTML and the full post content itself.
