    I just started my site and in settings: reading I selected summary of five most recent posts and clicked save. The site won't update, though. What have I done incorrectly?

    the setting unser 'reading' is only for feeds;

    you will need to edit the index template of your theme to change from full posts to summaries;

    try to find:
    the_content()
    and change it to:
    the_excerpt()

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_excerpt
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/the_content

    details depend on your currently used theme.
