    On the home page it is showing the full article instead of a summary. I have under "reading" Summary selected. Please help. I just want an excerpt to show with read more.

    Thanks

    The "Settings > Reading" option, at least in WP 3.3.1, is for feeds/RSS I think.

    If you don't have a lot of blog posts, you could just insert the "More" tag to force an excerpt on archive/category pages.

    The Frisco Theme actually uses its parent theme templates for this function. The parent theme being bp-default in the BuddyPress plugin.

    To customize, use a custom functions file for the Frisco theme or copy over the relevant templates from bp-default (index.php and archive.php for example) and drop them into Frisco theme folder. Then you can manually change the_content function on those templates to the_excerpt.
