    I've set my wordpress to show a summary of each article (in the "options" / "reading" tab), but in the index page, it still show the full article!
    Actually, each article has EXCERPT fields.

    How can I set? to show a excerpt of each article?

    When you selected summary, you selected it for the RSS feed. If you want an excerpt to show up, you can always click the 'more' quicktag while creating a post.

    You need to go and edit your index.php file and change <?php the_content() ?> to <?php the_excerpt() ?> and you'll get excerpts. make sure you have a single.php file set with <?php the_content(); ?> otherwise your single views will still be excerpts.
