Remove Auto-Excerpt

Recommended Posts

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.

Hi,

The excerpt is part of WordPress, if you wish to display your entire post instead of the excerpt, you can do this by enabling the Legacy mode in the WP-Content/PostLoop section. Once enabled, new options will appear allowing you to choose between excerpt and full text.

There is no option out of the box to allow you to click the read more button and have the full post appear on the same page. This would require customising the section which isn't something we can assist with. If you would like to have this functionality, I recommend you contact our helpdesk who will provide you with contact information for our trusted developers and agencies who will be able to achieve for you, for a fee

      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?

      At the bottom of this post, there is a CSS only option that I have implemented into my site. It looks brilliant, and I am super grateful for that addition to the thread. The only issue I am having is that the code he provides does not include all of the styling options for the button itself.
      My question is, how might I go about editing the styling of the button i.e. shadows, every element of the coloring, and border colors?
      No big deal if it's not easy to fix. Happy to provide any further information if necessary.
      Kind regards,
      Dan
      P.S. I have opened up the button in Google Dev window with Inspect and start editing it there, but it looks like there are some areas of the code that are connected to an external source (most likely bootstrap) and therefore I can't seem to edit it as much as I would like.

      First of all, sorry for my bad english.
       
      I have a problem that I never could solve: I can´t translate the words "READ MORE" in the loop. Where must I translate them?
