    Hi, first thanks for this great theme, is such clean and powerful.

    My question is how to edit the homepage style posts display, i created a child theme to work, and i want to change how the posts display on the homepage, i want to change from "the content" to show a post excerpt, can you point me whats the file to edit?

    My test page is this: http://classificadosinformatica.com/wordpress/

    Thank you very much.

    There are a lot of ways to do this. You won't need to edit code.

    From your dashboard go to Settings-->Reading. Beside "For each article in a feed, show" click summary. See if that works for you

    @thegrassroot Thanks so much for all the help.

    @GhostMaster Try adding <!--more--> to where you want to cut your posts.

    We'll solve the issue with excerpts, soon.

    Yes, that's what I meant.

    Sure, I believe it won't take long before we fix that.

    The option thegrassroot referred to is for feeds (For each article in a feed, show: full text / summary).

    This is not a bug, it's how theme is supposed to work. You can either add "more" tag to all your posts or copy content.php to your child theme folder and in line 22 replace the_content with the_excerpt.

    replacing "the_content" with "the_excerpt" worked! thank you Slobodan!

    Is there a way to include the featured image in that preview? For example, for each blog it would show:

    Title
    image
    summary

    Slobodan, the most recent update to 1.0.3 removed this fix. My content.php file looks like this:

    <?php if ( is_search() ) : // Only display Excerpts for Search ?>
    <div class="entry-summary">
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    </div><!-- .entry-summary -->
    <?php else : ?>
    <div class="entry-content">

    Is there a way to revert to 1.0.2 or fix this?

    You need to use child themes (always). This way you preserve the changes - http://www.searchenginejournal.com/approved-wordpress-child-theme-may-save-business-day/68151/

    So is it too late for me to fix?

    Unfortunately, now it is late.. You should first create a child theme, then make adjustments there. http://thematosoup.com/tips/importance-wordpress-child-themes/
