    The home page Blog section is showing Recent Posts, the theme is written to show the excerpt of the post, not full posts.

    The code for this is in wp-content/themes/twentyseventeen/template-parts/page/content-front-page-panels.php:68


    get_template_part( 'template-parts/post/content', 'excerpt' );


    get_template_part( 'template-parts/post/content', 'content' );

    will reveal the entire post (videos and images, full text) instead of just the excerpt.

    However, it’s not good practice to edit this file directly because twenty seventeen is regularly updated and your changes will be overwritten. You may need to explore creating a child theme out of it.

    An alternative to above would be to find a different way to show recent posts in full (like a custom shortcode), set a page to do so, and set the theme’s home page section to show that page instead.
