How to show latest blog post on blogger homepage?

Discussion in 'HTML & Website Design' started by patrickb, Feb 1, 2017.

  1. #1
    At the moment I own a blog on tennismind dot net, however on the home page it shows multiple article summaries with a thumbnail. I want to remove these and instead just show the latest post on the homepage in full with the older one after that one too. In general I want it so that each article is shown in full on the home page with the previous article following that one etc; Rather than have these summaries. How would I do this please?

    Hello there,

    From your blogger dashboard, go to : Settings => Posts, Comments and Sharing

    On the Post Template, Add this :

    
    <span class="fullpost">
    
    </span>
    
    Code (markup):
    Then Save.

    Normally the full posts should appear.. otherwise, Wrape your post inside this Span Class.

    Goodluck

    Ok I did the first part about the template but it didn't make a difference. I don't understand how I wrap my post in this span class? What part of my code would I wrap inside this span class?

    When you write a new article, switch to HTML Mode and add the content of your post inside this span ! Then check on your blog if the article appear in full mode !

    Goodluck

    Ok, so try this solution, but please, Backup your Template Before you doing so !!

    Open your template on the editor : (i think you use pixel responsive template from way2themes!)

    Find this :

    
     <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;item&quot;'>
             <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;static_page&quot;'>
    <div class='second-meta'>
      <a class='read-more anchor-hover' expr:href='data:post.url'>Read more <i class='fa fa-chevron-right'/></a>
                            <span class='post-labels'>
            <b:if cond='data:post.labels'>
             <i class='fa fa-folder-open-o'/>
             <b:loop values='data:post.labels' var='label'>
                                      <b:if cond='data:label.isLast == &quot;true&quot;'>
                                        <a expr:href='data:label.url' rel='tag'><data:label.name/></a>
                                      </b:if>
                                    </b:loop>
            </b:if>
           </span> 
          </div>
       </b:if>
          </b:if>
    
    Code (markup):
    And replace it with :

    
    <p>
    <data:post.body/>
    </p>
    
    Code (markup):
    The good way, is to try this on another blog by using the same template on your website!!

    Goodluck

    Yes, that looks a lot better now, thanks for your help.

    edit. just one thing...
    On the actual post page it shows the post twice. Everything else looks fine. :/ I think I need to put a <b:if> tag somewhere but I can't think what.

    On the homepage, click on the title of the article and it will take you to the post page. On that page there is two copies.
