Full Post on index
Hi there,

is it possible to show an entire sticky post on the index page instead of just a few lines?

Best Regards,

Are you looking to have just the sticky show full post and others show excerpts
or all post, sticky included, show full posts?

First off - I really love this theme. But I'd like to have full post content available on the homepage - sticky or regular post so any help doing that would be appreciated. I just started a podcast and would like to see the BluBrry embedded audio player as well as the formatting that I used on the post page to show up on the homepage.

To see what it's currently doing, here's a link to my site: http://www.boxscorejunkie.com

Again I appreciate any help that can be provided.

I would like to just let the sticky post be shown completely.
Besides, there won't be any more posts then one on the index page.

If there will only be one post, why not make it a full post instead of excerpt?

iSpectra Oct 1, 2012 04:38 PM

And how can I do so?

juggledad Oct 1, 2012 05:19 PM

edit the subtemplate 'postformat.php' and change the line
HTML Code:

<?php bfa_excerpt( 55, ' ...' ); ?>
to test for a sticky and it it is one, call 'the_content()' otherwise run the excerpt.

thanks for the help. I got one more question:
I'm use WOW Slider in the post but one can't see it even though the whole post is visible.
Should I try another slider or is there a fix for this?

juggledad Oct 2, 2012 11:56 AM

what post is it on?

iSpectra Oct 3, 2012 09:11 AM

It's on the one and only post on the index site.

juggledad Oct 3, 2012 09:21 AM

and your site is...?

When do you want the slider to show? I would suggest using a plugin like 'widget logic' to control when the slider shows up.

Hi Juggledad, I tried to replace <?php bfa_excerpt( 55, ' ...' ); ?> by <?php the_content(); ?> as you said in the postformat.php subtemplate, it kind of worked, but not really, my posts weren't fitting with the titles, some iframes didn't made it either... If you want to see it you can go to http://blog.philippebussieres.com. Thank you very much

juggledad Oct 15, 2012 05:02 AM

have you applied the thumbnail patch? (see sticky's in this forum)

Bubumachine Oct 16, 2012 03:35 PM

Nope I didn't but finally don't have to remove it either, so it's good for now thank you very much for your help i'll try this thread if needed again.

Went to see your site. Looks pretty good and interesting as well. Félicitations!
Siince I haven't installed the theme yet, it was interesting to see how it could look when one doesn't have "ideally-sized" pix. Tend to prefer the Android version which doesn't show a border around them but even half-filled the framed pix are presentable.
On Android, your header lost its left margin and rss icon kind of overlaps it at the end of the line even if Comportements... goes from 3 lines (in portrait) to 2 lines (landscape mode).
On single page, you chose to add the title of the page to the breadcrumbs while Bytesforall only uses the category. Therefore it takes quite a bit of space on a smartphone. Since it's also followed by your quote, result is one doesn't see even a glimpse of your single page title on the screen without scrolling.
As a matter of fact, it would be nice if a future version of Montezuma linked single to its title rather than to the blog's header.
Good luck with your study.
