Anyone work with the tubular theme and excerpt? (1 post)

    I'm using the tubular theme, which is exactly what we need except for one little issue. It posts the entire post with the video on the home page. Not what we need!
    We need only the video and the excerpt to show up on the home page, but try as I might I can't get that to happen.
    Each time I change the_content to the_excerpt (like I've done in every other wordpress blog) the video vanishes.
    We need the video and the the_excerpt on the landing page.

    There are 2 areas to write content. The normal area where you'd usually write content and another called video description. Both show on the landing page, however on the area where you would normally put content, that content along with the video shows when you are looking within a category - the content within the video description does not.
    If I could switch that, it would be great.
    Then I could put the excerpt under the video in the area where we would normally put content then in video description put the actual content we want people to see only after they open that post.

    I hope this makes sense, I've been pulling my hair out for hours and I don't have much left.
