I have finally got BlogEngine working, but when I published my first article, All I get is the title. All of the body Text is missing. I know it is probably me, but I can't find where I went wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

The content does appear in the RSS feed:


But isn't appearing on the main site.  There's a couple of possibilities.  Maybe you can paste the contents of your PostView.ascx file here.  This file is in the theme folder (themes\THEME_NAME).

Also check the Settings tab in the control panel, and see if you have either of the "Only show description of posts" boxes checked.

Neither of the boxes are checked.

The postview.ascx file is just copied from the Indigo theme folder. No changes were made.

I would look at the Extensions tab in the control panel.  If you have any custom extensions, I would disable those.

The only out-of-the-box extension I can think of that would alter the content would be the BreakPost extension.  That's the extension that allows you to enter [more] in a post.  If this extension is enabled, you could try disabling it to see if it makes any difference.

There are no custom Extensions and no change when I sdisabled the BreakPost extension.

It must have to do with my theme. If I change it to "standard" everything shows up

Yes, I should have tested for that.  The site can previewed in any theme by appending the theme name in the querystring:

Standard theme

The PostView.ascx file would be the biggest culprit.

Got it figured out. Thanks for your help. I had the post and comments pages screwed up.
