[resolved] Blog Post Dislpay (4 posts)

    I have the Cutline two column theme and I cannot find an option to only display a portion of the blog post. Is there a way to manually make it so that only a portion of the blog is visible thus allowing for more blog posts above the fold?

    You can either use the More quicktag, or edit your index.php file to show the_excerpt instead of the_content.

    after researching, this is a little out of my league. I'm having a hard time discovering where to insert the tag in the file.

    here is my index.php (where would I put the tag?)

    <?php if (have_posts()) : ?>

    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    <h2>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
    <h4><?php the_time('F jS, Y'); ?><!-- by <?php the_author() ?> --> · <?php comments_popup_link('No Comments', '1 Comment', '% Comments'); ?> · <?php the_category(', '); ?> <?php edit_post_link('Edit', ' · ', ''); ?></h4>
    <div class="entry">
    <?php the_content('[Read more →]'); ?>
    <p class="tagged"><span class="add_comment"><?php comments_popup_link('→ No Comments', '→ 1 Comment', '→ % Comments'); ?></span>Tags:<?php the_tags('','·',''); ?></p>
    <div class="clear"></div>

    <?php endwhile; ?>

    <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/navigation.php'); ?>

    <?php else : ?>

    <h2 class="page_header center">Not Found</h2>
    <div class="entry">
    <p class="center">Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.</p>
    <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . "/searchform.php"); ?>

    <?php endif; ?>

    man...i hate that feeling. You know, the feeling when you just realized that you are making things way harder than they need to be?

    anyway, I figured it out....Thanks
