It must be staring me in the face somewhere yet I still can't see it. How do I make posts show full content instead of excerpts ?!

Hi Deepsouth - When you're in the Content/PostLoop section of the visual editor on your blog or an archive page, you'll see these options http://d.pr/i/B6FX which allow you to specify the full content layout of any/all posts!


Have you searched the forums yet or checked out the DMS user docs?

Oh no, it *was* staring me in the face. I looked at that page several times. Thanks for pointing out the obvious!

When you're writing a post, and you enter some text into the Excerpt field, the automatic excerpting process is overridden and only the manual excerpt is displayed.  However, you must enter some content into that field.  Without it, the automatic excerpt will show.

      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?

      Hey there,
      I hope that this questions doesn´t come up every day:
      I´d like to set up a sub-page that contains my blog (http://www.finmeetstech.com/blog/). When I am adding posts to this page, they always show as excerpt with a read more button that links to an other page, at which the full post content can be viewed. However, I would like to either have the whole blog content on the first page (http://www.finmeetstech.com/blog/) or to change the functionality of the read more button, so that it is toggling the full content instead of loading a new page. 
      I already selected
        For each article in a feed, show Full text
       
       but it didn´t work.
      I am using DMS with the voyant child theme. I hope that you can help me with this. Moreover, I should add that I am not really confident in editing any php files. 
      Thank you in advance.

      In the following screenshot, you see excerpts are not adjusting with thumbs. they leave some space. That really look no good.
