functions.php is like style.css in child themes – it should be empty and only contain the custom stuff.
As for your index.php, replace:
get_template_part( 'content', get_post_format() );
get_template_part( 'content', 'custom' );
Then make a copy of content.php and name it content-custom.php.
It should look like this: https://gist.github.com/generatepress/c2b2ee0b36793b445571
Basically, I removed any reference to the_excerpt, so it’s only calling the_content, which will show the full content.
Let me know if that helps or not 🙂
