    Just a quick question about wordpress.

    On my blog's homepage it only shows the title of each blog posts along with a few sentences of the blog posts. Meaning the user has to click "read more" to read the complete blog posts.

    How do I make it so the ENTIRE blog posts displays on the homepage of my blog, instead of just the title and a few sentences.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thank You. :)

    maybe because your themes
    change to default if you see fullpost
    you need to edit php at themes previous

    What edits to I need to make in my theme to show the full posts?

    I know the default theme does it, but I've changed it to a different theme...

    If someone could point out which line of code to change I'd really appreciate it.

    Thank You. :)

    first. what themes you used on your blog.
    second. you can check on main / index.php
    PHP:
    <?php the_content('Read the rest of this entry Â»'); ?>
    the_content will show full post not just an excerpt.

    PHP:
    <?php the_excerpt('Read the rest of this entry Â»'); ?>
    the_excerpt will show your blog title and the excerpt, just few sentences

    third : some custom themes is already auto make an excerpt on every blog post.

    Just check the index.php on your themes folder.

    Good luck
