In other topic, there is a way to show content without excerpt and set words number before excerpt.

But I don't know how to disable automatic excerpt by DMS? I want to use manual excerpt in wordpress visual editor

Hi there, if you set a manual excerpt in a post in DMS, then as long as excerpts are set to display it will pick up the manual excerpt instead of just shortening the post to the first so many words etc. So just make sure you set the manual excerpt for each post you want to display and you'll be ok.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      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.

       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.
