Show full first post content on front page only, the rest as excerpts

Recommended Posts



I'm developing a site for a client using the latest release of Pagelines and they'd like to have a post covering their latest issue of their magazine kept sticky on the front page. The sticky part is easy and working fine along with the rest of the site. What I can't figure out is how to display the full content of that post on the front page only and have the rest display as excerpts only.

The front page as it stands now is here http://tamiyamodelmagazine.com/

I now need to get this post to show in full on the front page with its subscribe button etc so visitors are encouraged to subscribe etc. http://tamiyamodelmagazine.com/blog/2012/09/25/welcome-to-tamiya-model-magazine-international/

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. :)

Kind regards

There isn't a setting available for making the full width post a full post. This looks like something that needs to be done with code. You may want to contact a Pro about how to approach this customization: http://www.pagelines.com/pros/

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Hi Catrina,

Thanks I'll drop one of them a line. I either need to show the sticky post in full, or show a page there instead with excerpts from all the latest blog posts underneath. Is it possible to do it that way do you think?

It maybe possible, I would imagine you would probably need to create a custom section for this type of functionality. Therefore, contacting one of the Pros would be the best suggestion.

      Hi Pagelines team and wider community,
      I am looking to develop a single post page for my blog. I have read over an old article on the subject, however the link provided on achieving this goal was giving me security warnings. Is there any way I can get round this?
      Secondly, I have had a root around the .zip file provided on my sites backup, however was unable to locate any file in there with the name of Single.php. Does this file exist in the Pagelines theme?
      By the way, this is the unsafe article: http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/create-a-custom-page-template/ (Click at your peril).

      I'm trying to find a way to display the full content of my posts on my posts page rather than the post excerpt. 
      I've tried using various plugins to create a custom excerpt with no success, so I'm guessing I'll need to make the change to the theme files. That being said I'm not able to find where I would make that change. In the past I've been able to replace <?php the_excerpt(); ?> with <?php the_content(); ?>, but I'm unable to locate this in the framework theme? Am I missing something here?

      How can I remove the "next post" links below each post page? 
      Before we had a related post section, but I can't find it among any functions, widgets etc.

      Hey folks - I'm trying to get right of some 'dead space' at the bottom of the page in the Material Theme. (see attached) Those two gray lines have an "Edit" button in between them when the browser has a login cookie for the site. Here I created a screenshot from a browser session that doesn't have context for my main login, so you can see that the "Edit" indicator is gone, but the bars and the space it occupies still remains. Can someone help me isolate this so I can make it *completely* disappear? Thanks.
