Modifing default amount of text for a post on the home page

Is there a way to allow more text of a post on the home page to show than the default that the Montezuma theme allows? Please see my screenshot for an example.

Ideally, I'd like to just have the front page show as much of any given post as I want, until I insert the "more" tag. I haven't been able to figure out a way to do so, so the theme just ends up cutting off the front page excerpt at some default value.

Thanks in advance for your help!

change teh 'bfa_excerpt()' function in the post format.php subtemplate to 'the_content()' then you will get till the more tag

Juggledad,

Thanks for the comment. That fixed my initial problem, but it's introduced two more. Please see: http://bike-urious.com/

1.) The featured image gets displayed again, as part of the post.
2.) After about 3 posts, the posts become full-width, and it's moved the sidebar to the bottom, almost like it's being rendered on a phone.

The most concerning thing to me is that even if I got to the subtemplate options and reset the postformat.php to the default, problems 1 and 2 still exist. Your advice is appreciated.

Juggledad, thanks for your help. Unfortunately, the fix seems to have broken two other things on the home page which are very drastic:

1.) The featured image is now showing up twice.
2.) After post 3 or so, everything gets shifted towards the left, and the sidebar has been moved to the bottom, almost like it's being rendered on a mobile device.

My biggest problem right now is that even when I try to reset the postformat.php or copy that file over from a previous backup, it isn't fixing the issue. The site looks very broken at the moment, so I'd really appreciate someone's help on this.

Thanks.

Not sure what we can do since you swapped to twenty fourteen however when changing the 'bra_excerpt()' to 'the_content()' you might want to remove the line
HTML Code:
	<?php bfa_thumb( 620, 180, true, '<div class="thumb-shadow"><div class="post-thumb">', '</div></div>' ); ?>
to get ride of teh thumbnail that the theme puts out.
