How to show a full post, not just an excerpt

by Graeme Hutchison   Last Updated August 24, 2018 03:08 AM

I have a blog page where blog posts have an excerpt on with a continue reading link below.

When the link is clicked the full post should appear/or should be diverted to.

This isn't that case. The user is diverted to the post, however only the excerpt is displayed along with a continue reading link which doesn't activate anything.

I have deactivated all plugins, I have also played around with the settings but can't find any triggers.

You need to use the_content instead of the_excerpt when you display your 'single' post.

If you would post your code, you might get a more detailed answer.

in content.php file find the line with the_excerpt(); and replace it with the_content();
