Hi Ant,

It'd be a lot easier to give a solution if we had the URL for your page?

LOL! Hilarious.. Sorry! [[LINK href=""]][[/LINK]]

Duncan O'Neill comments:

Hi Ant,

you could simply adjust the number of words of content your posts display on the home page;

In home.php, in the neutica folder, around line 27, adjust the figure there for the number of words displayed before the 'read more';

<?php the_content_rss('', TRUE, '', 90); ?>

Duncan O'Neill comments:

That is, change the figure ( default is '40' ) to whatever best suits your layout.

Thanks Duncan!

That's exactly what I'd like to do but the only problem is that I'm such a noob I can't seem to figure out where my home.php is in my folder structure, so I'm not finding that line of code.

I've attached an image of my site directory including the Neutica and Thematic folder contents, since Neutica is a "child theme for Thematic"

Maybe you can point me in the right direction?
