[resolved] Showing excerpts on blog template on Twenty Twelve child theme (3 posts)

    I have a special page that displays the blog (not on the homepage). I am trying to get it to show excerpts, but my child theme custom code is a bit convoluted due to custom post-types and a remapped homepage.

    My theme isn't doing what other's child themes do with the_excerpt() and I'm not sure how to make it work for the blog template and category pages.

    BLOG PAGE:

    <?php
    /*
    Template Name: Blog
    */
    
    // Which page of the blog are we on?
    $paged = get_query_var('paged');
    query_posts('cat=-0&paged='.$paged);
    
    // make posts print only the first part with a link to rest of the post.
    global $more;
    $more = 0;
    
    //load index to show blog
    load_template(STYLESHEETPATH . '/indextt.php');
    ?>

    INDEXTT.PHP:

    <?php
    /**
     * @package WordPress
     * @subpackage Twenty_Twelve
     * @since Twenty Twelve 1.0
     */
    
    get_header(); ?>
    
    	<div id="primary" class="site-content">
    		<div id="content" role="main">
    		<?php if ( have_posts() ) : ?>
    
    			<?php /* Start the Loop */ ?>
    			<?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>

    			<?php endwhile; ?>
    
    			<?php twentytwelve_content_nav( 'nav-below' ); ?>
    
    		<?php else : ?>
    
    			<article id="post-0" class="post no-results not-found">

    edit this section in content-blog.php:

    <?php if ( is_search() ) : // Only display Excerpts for Search ?>
    		<div class="entry-summary">
    			<?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    		</div><!-- .entry-summary -->
    		<?php else : ?>
    		<div class="entry-content">
    			<?php the_content( __( 'Continue reading <span class="meta-nav">&rarr;</span>', 'twentytwelve' ) ); ?>
    			<?php wp_link_pages( array( 'before' => '<div class="page-links">' . __( 'Pages:', 'twentytwelve' ), 'after' => '</div>' ) ); ?>
    		</div><!-- .entry-content -->
    		<?php endif; ?>

    to:

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