    This is the relevant snip from the /posts_loop_template.php

    <div class="entry-summary">
    	<?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    </div>

    but I cannot find where to alter what makes up an excerpt, I'd like mine longer

    Howdy postrules,

    There's no built-in function in this plugin to modify excerpt length and, since the_excerpt() takes no parameters, you'd need to create a custom filter to manipulate its output.

    Check out the section titled 'Control Excerpt Length using Filters.'

    Hope that helps.

    Eric
