    Hey!

    Question 1:
    Is there anyone who knows how to show the full posts in the frontpage instead of thumbnails/shortened posts?

    Question 2:
    I need to make the links in my blog open in another tab. Is there any way to make all links in my blog do that in an easy way?

    Thanks in advance mates!

    PS: I'm using blogger!

    If the theme doesn't provide an option to disable excerpts then you will have to edit the core files. This is the code that gives you full content :

    <?php the_content(); ?>

    so look for this in your index.php file : <?php the_excerpt(); ?> and then change that to <?php the_content(); ?>

    You can further customize those or change those as per your needs:
