How to Show Full Post on Post Page in WordPress Theme Primer/Stout/Mins

Leave a Comment
Sometimes it is needed to show the full post or full article on the homepage or the post page in WordPress. Some WordPress themes have options whether you wanna show full content or just the excerpt on the post page but many themes don't.

The WordPress theme Primer (Stout, Mins), which is offered by GoDaddy for free, does not have option of showing full content instead of the excerpt on the homepage or the post page.




But... you can get this done by doing some slight changes in the theme codes from the Appearance > Editor.

Remember, there's always a way. ;)

So, let me explain what I'm talking about...

Show Full Content Instead of Excerpt on the Homepage or Post Page in the WordPress theme Primer/Stout/Mins

Hope you have already installed the theme Primer in your WordPress website. Now, log in to the wp-admin and navigate to the Appearance > Editor where you will have all the theme files in the right hand list.


Select the theme Primer from the right hand side drop down menu, if not already selected; as shown in the image below:


Navigate to content.php from the Right Hand Side Navigation

From the Right Hand Side navigation menu, select the content.php and there you go. You have to do a minor edit in order to show the full post.


After you click the content.php, search for "excerpt" by clicking the Ctrl+F button. The search term "excerpt" should be in the 55th line of the code.


Now, you just have to replace the text "excerpt" with "content" and you will start seeing full post on the homepage or the post page.

Did it work for you? Let me know in the comments.

How to Create a Popup on Menu Click in Your WordPress Website

2 comments
Ever wanted to show a simple popup or subscriber popup when someone clicks any menu item on your WordPress website?

Menu item click popups are quite helpful if you don't want to send your visitors to a different page or a new tab but sometimes people find it quite difficult to create a popup when someone clicks a link or a button.



But what if I tell you that it's quite simple to do this thing if you own a WordPress powered website.

Curious? Well, let's get started...

Create a Popup when a Link or Button is Clicked

Using this trick you can show a contact form, a button, a image or any text message to your visitors. The WordPress plugin Popup Maker – Popup Forms, Optins & More makes it quite simple to create any kind of popup on your website.

You can install this plugin to your WordPress website by searching at the Add New plugin section or download directly from the official WordPress.org.

After installing the popup, you will need to create a new popup by selecting the Add Popup, give it a title and in the text box; either you can show a image, texts or any contact form by pasting the shortcode of the Contact Form 7 or any other WordPress contact form plugins.



You can even make a subscriber popup by using this plugin.

How to Make the Popup on a Menu Item Click?

If you want your popup to appear on a menu item click then select the option Click Open while adding Trigger for your popup.



 Now, go to your Menus from Appearance and add a new Custom Link, with # as link, to the menu.



When you will click the menu item's dropdown arrow, you should get an option as Trigger a Popup and your already created popups should appear there, select one from them, as shown in the image below:


If you don't see the Trigger a Popup option then you should check the option Popup from the above Screen Options menu as the image below:


That's it.

It's not like that it is the only way to show popups on a menu item click in the WordPress website, but I find this very easy to do and negligible time taking.

Remove Footer Credits of the WordPress Theme Hestia 2.0.4

2 comments
Hestia is one of the great fully-featured, fully responsive and highly customizable WordPress themes which is offered by Themeisle in free as well the premium version. But for a normal blog or simple website, free version of the theme is more than enough.

I have used this WordPress theme on my few blogs and it works just fine. But you don't get an option to remove the footer credits of Hestia in its free version.

There are many tricks and articles out there which explain the removal of the footer credits of various WordPress themes. But I didn't find a single resource which explains the way to remove the footer credits of the theme Hestia.


I researched a lot and finally got the complete solution using which you can remove the existing footer credits from the theme Hestia and replace it with a custom one.

Let's get started...

Steps to Remove Footer Credits of the WordPress theme Hestia (2.0.4 Onwards)

Here's a step-to-step guide for the same:

Step 1: Log in to the Wp-admin

First of all, you have to get logged in into your wp-admin. Install the theme Hestia if you haven't installed it already and go to the next step.

Step 2: Open the Theme Editor

After you login to the wp-admin and install the theme, Select the option Appearance > Editor from the admin panel.


Step 3: Locate the File class-hestia-footer.php

From the right hand side Theme Files, try to find out the file named as class-hestia-footer.php which is generally in the folder inc > views > main.



Open the file class-hestia-footer.php and there you go, start editing the file as per your requirements.

Step 4: Add Custom Copyright Credits to the Theme

Now for adding the custom copyright credits to the theme Hestia, you will need to do some code changes in the file class-hestia-footer.php itself.

You have to edit the file from the line 128 to 134 approx.

The unchanged code looks something like this:



For example: I have to make the footer credits as "Copyright © 2018 | YourSite" where YourSite is my website name and the YourSite.com is my website address.

In order to show the above required footer credits, your code modifications should be something like this:


You can also copy the below code and paste it in your class-hestia-footer.php from the line 128 to 134.


esc_html__( 'Copyright © 2018 | %2$s', 'hestia' ),
esc_html__( 'YourSite', 'hestia' ),
 /* translators: %1$s is URL, %2$s is WordPress */
sprintf(
 '<a href="%1$s" rel="nofollow">%2$s</a>',
 esc_url( __( 'http://YourSite.com/', 'hestia' ) ),
 'YourSite'


You can replace YourSite with your website name and http://YourSite.com with your website address.

Done?

Well, now, hit Update File and you should see the changes.

How to Just Hide the Default Footer Credits of WordPress Theme Hestia

If you just want to hide the default footer credit and don't wanna show the custom copyright text then it's even more simpler than that.

Log in to the wp-admin and go to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS and just add the following codes and hit publish.


You can just copy and paste the below code in the Additional CSS and it'd start working.


.copyright.pull-right{
 display:none;
}

As soon you paste the code, default footer copyright will not appear in your website anymore.

That's it.

I'm not a programmer or coder. I just got this working for me.
