It’s just come to my attention that my blog roll is showing the full story on the first post; this is new – it didn’t used to happen and I have not changed anything. Here are my POST EXCERPT SETTINGS:
Home Page: Excerpt
Sticky Posts: Excerpt
Post Excerpt length: 120 words
Excerpt suffix: …
Continue reading: continue reading
HTML Tags: disable
Any idea how to fix this problem?

The first post is a specific post format (in your case – link). Post formats are always displayed in full because they are intended for very specific usage cases.June 29th, 2018 at 21:09 #65436
So, how do I change that – it did not used to do that – this is a new issue.July 4th, 2018 at 11:10 #65579ZedCryout Creations Team
The theme has always worked this way, you might just have never applied post formats to your posts before.
While editing the post, you’ll find the format selector on the right column.July 4th, 2018 at 22:06 #65604
I figured out the problem yesterday. In the post itself, under FORMAT (right column in WordPress), LINK was selected instead of STANDARD. Not sure how that happened, but it did. With LINK selected, the entire post showed up on the blog roll – but only that post. I changed it back to STANDARD and the problem went away.
Indeed, you are correct – I have never selected those other formats.
