    As for making the article on the index page a little shorter, you could use the <!--more--> or the <!--nextpage--> tags, where ever you want to stop the article at, so users can click that link to go to the page with full article on it.

    Well, as far as I know, all this is done via the Blog Control Panel => Write Post page.. =/ You'd shorten the length of the Article itself...with one of those tags above, in the post box..

    Maybe someone else knows differently then, I'm not sure.. =/

    I replaced the_content(); with the_excerpt() and everything is fine now
    No large post in the front page
