Blog Post Full Content Tutorial

By default, your WordPress Blog Page will show a list of Summaries of your Blog Posts. This is not a setting that you can change in your administrative panel. It has to be done in the PHP file. Here’s how:

  1. You need to have a way to access your files on the server. I recommend the [FireFTP Add-On] for Firefox. You can also use the GoDaddy Hosting Control Center > Your Files. Or you can use any FTP client.
  2. On the server, you’ll need to find the index.php file for your theme. From your WordPress root folder, the path should be /wp-content/themes/crazyThemeName/. Specific to my folders is “/WebProg/wp-content/themes/mytheme/. Download the index.php file and open it in your favorite editing software. If you don’t have one, Notepad will do the job, but I recommend [Komodo Edit].
  3. In the file, locate:
    [code lang="PHP"][/code]

    and change it to

    [code lang="PHP"][/code]
  4. Save the file and copy the new file back into your FTP directory at /wp-content/themes/crazyThemeName/.

Refresh your Blog page and see how the entire Post is shown on your blog page.
