    I started making a new WP site and went to make a post, but on the home page but it isn't formatted, all the text is lumped together without paragraph breaks etc

    When I'm in WP and writing the post, if I highlight text and then click to make it bold or italic, it shows it in the box as bolded or italicised etc, but when I click publish, it comes out on the home page without any formatting.

    If I then click the post link or the "read more" link on the home page, that takes me to the page where the post comes out correctly formatted.

    Any idea how to fix this so it shows correctly on the home page? Non techy answers please :)

    Genesis uses a lot of its own hooks so may be a pain to troubleshot see if theres an option to display full post rather than excerpts from the theme settings might fix things

    On the front page there is a class called standard hentry
    Should that be standard entry maybe?

    That's how it's supposed (been coded) to look. Exerpts on all themes usually strip out the formatting.

    You could try displaying <the_content> rather than <the_excerpt> which should sort it but agree that it will probably be a pain to sort on Genesis

    Ahhhh, thanks, as soon as I saw the word excerpts above, I had an idea of where it might be, I went to widgets where I have to add things as "Genesis featured posts", the settings there are:

    show content
    show content limit
    show excerpt
    no content


    I had it set to "show content limit" and had it set to 2000 characters, I've changed that to "show content" and it now formats correctly on the home page, thanks for the help :)
