How do I set up cropped posts on main blog page? (2 posts)

    What do I need to do to get all my posts to appear cropped to the first 345-to-365 words ending with [...] on my main blog page, as they already do on the monthly pages? I have not been able to figure out how to accomplish this.

    Would this be recommended for my blog?

    if you look at your template's archive.php file, you'll probably see that it is using the_excerpt in The_Loop. That's what does the "cropping".

    If you want that also on your main page, try editing your theme's index.php and replacing the_content with the_excerpt.
