[resolved] Full text showing instead of summary (3 posts)

    In the admin I chose my blog posts to show up as summary (as opposed to full text) and it's still showing full text.

    I'm showing blog posts by choosing which page I want to be static and which I want to be for the blog.

    These posts were pulled from another table on an older site.

    Is there something new in 3.2.1 that would be causing this issue? If you need more information from me to help me out, please let me know.

    there is no such option in the standard admin - unless your theme offers this option.
    (the option in the standard admin under 'settings' 'reading' is for rss feeds only)

    you probably need to edit the index.php (?) template and chage the_content() to the_excerpt() http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_excerpt

    Got it.

    I made the change in content.php to 'the_excerpt'. Just looking in the wrong place.

    Thanks!
