[resolved] how to control the display text of the posts in home page and catalog page? (5 posts)

    In my site, I set 5 posts showing in Home Page.
    The posts display the full text with original formate in Home Page, I mean the post in Home Page shows just as what it is in individual Post Page.
    And Now I want posts show only a summary in Home Page, and of course with it's original formate. How can I do that? Is it possible to control how many lines or words I want to show in the summary? And how to add a tag <more> in the end of the summary which links to individual Post Page?

    Another question-- In the catalog page, which shows all the posts in this catalog, the post only shows a full paragraph with all the text words together without original formate, and neglects the video and audeo contects.
    And now I want posts show a full text with correct formate, just the same show as in Post Page, not summary. How can I do that?

    Help me pls! Thanks a lot!!

    I use to do this manually. choose where you want to end your summary and in html view add <!--more-->

    In the catalog page, which shows all the posts in this catalog, the post only shows a full paragraph with all the text words together without original formate

    locate which template creates the catalog page;

    and search for the_excerpt() - replace it with the_content()
