By default WordPress manages this information under the Settings > Reading Settings page in the administration area. If you have the options set below, the following actions will happen;

  • For each article in a feed, show…. Full text: This will show the full blog post when someone views your main Blog page
  • For each article in a feed, show…. Summary: This will show the summary blog post when someone views your main Blog page, this is called the Excerpt in WordPress language

With Divi though, they like to do things their own way. They actually ignore these settings and use their own settings which can be found within the Divi > Theme Options > General tab. Within here you will see an option for enabling or disabling the “Blog Style Mode” which is the same thing as above. When the “Blog Style Mode” is set to as follows, this happens;

  • Blog Style Mode Enabled: Is the same as showing as ‘Full Text’ so the whole blog post will display on the main Blog page
  • Blog Style Mode Disabled: Is the same as showing as ‘Summary’ so only a snippet, the Excerpt, will display on the main Blog page

Make sure you have these options set to how you prefer. It is recommended to keep these two settings in Sync so that you don’t get confused when changing things in the future.
