Display full blog post instead of excerpt

Recommended Posts

On my blog page, is currently set up with my image on the left and the title on the right. All of my blog posts are short. Only a few sentences. I would like the post body to show on the blog page. Is there a way to insert the post body below the post title? Is there a way to use code to insert the post body? Or another way to make this happen.

My site is not live and I don't have the page created yet. I'm thinking about what I want to do and what is possible. The best example I can give is if you insert a summary block of posts. And you set it to a list layout. On the left there is the image and on the right there is the title and below the title is the excerpt. Instead of displaying the excerpt could you display the full content of the post? Is there a way to customize that? My posts will contain two buttons. And I don't think I can display buttons in an excerpt.

On my blog page, I would like to be able to put the full blog post instead of just the title and an excerpt. I know if I choose a certain layout I can achieve this, however I don't like it. I like the look of the list display, but you can only use an excerpt. Is there a way using custom coding to replace the excerpt with the full post on the blog page? I have not yet set up my blog yet because this is my ideal layout, but I'm not sure if I can achieve it.

If your blog posts are short, can you not copy/paste the blog text into the excerpt so that displays? Or do you have images and other content beyond text that you want to be visible on the blog list?

This used to be available on a few old 7.0 templates, but I've not seen a solution to render every full blog post on the main blog page in 7.1
