    is there a way to show less text than i am showing here on these excerpts on the posts? i'd like it to just show the title and say "read more" or something to that effect.

    http://internalcompass.us/castle/

    in short i don't want these big blocks of text under each post on the homepage. any help is much appreciated!

    what is the current code of content.php in the child theme?

    you will need to remove the_excerpt() from the code; possibly using a conditional stateent to make that specific for the posts page.
    and also rearrange the title and post-thumbnail...

    glad you asked. actually to create the double columns and the post excerpts, i jacked with a base .php file in the twenty twelve theme itself -- maybe it was content.php, not sure.

    this was a few weeks ago before i understood about the need to set up a child theme which i have since set up.

    this is the code i have in the base content.php file. not sure if that will make it clear to you what i did

    <?php
    /**
     * The default template for displaying content. Used for both single and index/archive/search.
     *
     * @package WordPress
     * @subpackage Twenty_Twelve
     * @since Twenty Twelve 1.0
     */
    ?>
    
    	<article id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>" <?php post_class(); ?>>
    		<?php if ( is_sticky() && is_home() && ! is_paged() ) : ?>
    		<div class="featured-post">
    			<?php _e( 'Featured post', 'twentytwelve' ); ?>

    do you think there a change i need to make in the above code from content.php to hide the excerpts of the text on my homepage, or is it located elsewhere?

    internalcompass.us/castle
