    The post Long-form Posts and Business Identity on the page https://businessidentitydemo.wordpress.com/updates/ says “This is a sample blog post which uses excerpts from the book My Life and Work by the author Henry Ford. It’s intended to show how long-form text is displayed in the Business Identity theme so that you can be confident writing long and information-rich updates for your website visitors. Click the Continue Reading link below to see more of this post.”

    However, there is no “Continue Reading” link and WordPress support verified that the “More” tag is not supported by this theme.

    https://premium-themes.forums.wordpress.com/topic/displaying-full-text-on-blog-pageposts-page?replies=8 The discussion was regarding ” I’d like to be able to show the full text of my blog posts on my blog page, so that I can control whether each post shows the full text or partial text via the More tag. I noticed someone asked about this early on, and it looked like there might be some changes made. Is there currently any way to do this?” The prior post said that the code was to be deployed as of Dec 2014. However, I am not able to see the long form posts or a continue reading link on my own website on the blog posts page. https://aquariusph.wordpress.com/news/

    It was suggested in the forums that this was a design decision by the author. If that is the case, I would prefer consistent navigation for posts throughout the website. Can you clarify and provide guidance?

    Secondly, the breadcrumbs are not showing up on the blog posts pages which makes navigating back to the home page difficult. Is there a way to add the breadcrumbs back in?

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    Can you please make your site public so that I am able to view it? I’m unable to assist with any of this or verify if WordPress.com support gave you proper guidance with regard to Business Identity without seeing your site.

    Cheers,

    I got the solution to the blog posts from WordPress. In the Customizer, under Website Layout, I switched the setting for Blog Post from Excerpt to Full. The “Continue Reading” tag is now on my blog post page.

    The site should be public now if you need to review it.

    Great! I’ll mark this resolved and close it out but please feel free to open another thread if you run into any other issues.

    Cheers,
