Hey guys, first off I LOVE this theme. It's the most customizable WP theme I have ever seen!!

I am trying to display full posts on my main page instead of the excerpts and this is what I have done per Robin Denning's post that was marked as solved.

1. I changed <?php bfa_excerpt( 55, ' ...' ); ?> to <?php get_content(); ?> in the postformat.php file and left the bfa_thumb line as default

2. I edited line 35 on the parse_php line to if (is_single() AND have_posts()) and also tried the patch code if ((is_single() OR is_page()) AND have_posts())

When I make these changes the body of the post is not displayed and I only get the date, title, tags and read more link.

So sorry to post this, I was hoping to solve my own problem by reading the old post.

My site is on an internal testing server, so I can't share the link...but I am going after exactly what http://alittlesewing.com/ looks like for the posts on my main page.

without seeing what you have done, I'd have to guess.
Do you have a caching plugin active?

why not put it on your server in a subdomain?

I installed a clean WP to a testing directory on my live site and made the change to line 35 of the parse php file and changed the posttemplate file to the get content code to show what is happening on the test site I am working on.

thanks!!!

p.s. no caching plugins

'get_content' should be 'the_content' - I changed it for you

Jug, you're amazing. If I ever do posts, I sure know who I'll turn to if I get stuck.
