    I am trying to get my site to just show the beginning of the post and a link at the bottom to "Read the rest of this story".
    I tried changing it at the "reading settings" changing it from "full text" to "summary".

    tried changing it at the "reading settings" changing it from "full text" to "summary".

    these settings are for rsds feeds only - they have no effect on the templates.

    you will need to edit the corresponding templates of your theme.

    I am sorry. I can't figure it out. I have tried changing "content" to "excerpt" on a few different templates but none have worked. What template do I need to do it in?

    Woooo hooo, I got it. Thanks for that link. No way I would have found that on my own, well at least this week. haaaaa.
    Now the part I am trying to do is get my pictures from my posts to show in the "excerpt". Any clue?
