WordPress/PHP Help Needed - I'm Stuck

by 3 comments
I just installed a new blog.

By default the full post should show up unless I either use the 'more' tag or I use the 'excerpt' option.

But the post is being cut off after about 55 words, as if it's in excerpt mode.

The relevant code that I can find is:

<p><?php the_content('Read the rest of this entry &raquo;');

After about 55 words, the post is just truncated, with this symbol:


The symbol is not a link to the rest of the entry. And I haven't used the more tag.

I've contacted theme support, but am getting no response.

Does anyone know what could be causing this?

    hmm.. weird...

    Is this in the main index file? or maybe in the single post file, or page file?

      Guys, thank you. I just heard back from the theme designer. The 'the_content' directive had been overridden in a separate file with a reference to getting the_excerpt. Wasn't in post.php or page.php or index.php but in another one called home.php.

      I replace the code and all is well. Aside from my mind being completely frazzled by this, that is - as I've been wrangling with it for quite some time now.

      Anyway, thanks again.

      - kat
