How do I edit the SOHO THEME HTML to make full posts show on my homepage?

I've seen how to do this on a lot of the newer themes but can't find a tutorial for Soho.
I'm not talking about getting rid of a "read more" button, I just want to see all full posts on my blog. Right now they look look like tiles. No first paragraph or anything, just the photo and the title.

Thank you!!!

Hi Sjmiano...


You need to Edit your theme Blog1 widget data tags in order to achieve this. I am guessing you are well verse with your Theme Edit HTML editor you can try this. Before proceeding Backup your theme codes to your computer using the Backup/Restore button.


  • At Theme > Edit HTML > click "Jump to Widget" > select Blog1 widget..
  • Find and expand <b:includable id="post" var="post"> by clicking the small black triangle.
  • Find below..

              <b:else/>
                <b:include name='headerByline'/>
              </b:if>
              <b:include data='post' name='postTitle'/>
            </b:if>
            <b:include data='post' name='postFooter'/>

  • Replace to this -- choose your preferred post display...

DISPLAYS THE FULL POSTS IN HOMEPAGES/INDEX PAGES

              <b:else/>
                <b:include name='headerByline'/>
              </b:if>
              <b:include data='post' name='postTitle'/>
              <b:comment> Displays full posts </b:comment>
              <data:post.body/>
            </b:if>
            <b:include data='post' name='postFooter'/>

OR

DISPLAYS THE POSTS SNIPPETS IN HOMEPAGE/INDEX PAGES

              <b:else/>
                <b:include name='headerByline'/>
              </b:if>
              <b:include data='post' name='postTitle'/>
              <b:comment> Displays post snippets </b:comment>
              <b:eval expr='snippet(data:post.body, { length: 300 })' />
            </b:if>
            <b:include data='post' name='postFooter'/>

  • click Save Theme
  • Refresh & Preview your blog homepage.

Hi.. great it worked out well for you..

Based on your reply, you may have post display inconsistencies since that your post layout ia handled by the theme default layout functions. This normally happens when you have contents with heavy images and to add, the post width is quite narrow.

Which is the reasons I have provided 2 options for your to work with and see which ones that will work for you.
