I suggest allowing for WAY more outside time for potty time. The problem your pup is having is very common. :)
Also, when he/she does do all potty outside, make a HUGE happy production about it. TONS of praises. OVER do it. As if he/she just won a marathon. LOL
Praise works!
Contrary to some beliefs, rubbing a dog's nose in it's "accidents" is a HUGE no no!
Do not scold him/her for having his accidents inside.
Turn things around. Reinforce when he/she DOES do all potty outside. Most all dogs desire praise from their owners, not shame.

Lastly....be patient! Not all pups completely potty train at the same age.

Good luck, and remember, patience, tons of praise when potty is completed outside, and no scolding. Your pup will get it all down soon enough.

Happy tails! :0)

Take him out for poo right after he eats and paraise him when he poos. This will get him in the habit of going poo outside.

take him outside after he eats until he poops or when u see him going to poop grab him and run him outside and let him finish there, after a couple of times he will understand that poop goes outside
