I'm trying to get my index page, which I'm using as my home page, to display excerpts of my posts as the default. I read the thing about replacing "the_content" with "the_excerpt" but my index.php doesn't have the_content anywhere in it, so I can't replace it. I'm awfully confused.
I'm not good with code, but I can follow directions. My website is http://www.bridentitypolitics.com. Thank you!
