    The plugin is based on the default Excerpt function. Some themes are using there own function. What theme are you using ? What’s the URL of your website ?

    The theme I’m using is McKinley. Here’s the page I’m trying to get excerpts for (not the static home page):

    Rather than having the entire stories cluttered on one page, I just want the stories to be in a list of small excerpts. The excerpt plugin is selected, active, and apparently not doing anything. The screen options also have “excerpt” selected.

    The McKinley theme use the_excerpt to display results on search.

    You have to modify the theme to use the_excerpt() instead of using the_content() function.

    For exemple :

    Reading > Front page displays > Posts page > Blog

    You can duplicate page.php and rename it home.php.

    In home.php replace (line 34) the_content() by the_excerpt().

    Your Blog page will display the_excerpt instead of the_content.

    This question is not directly linked with “WP Excerpt Settings”. The plugin use the_excerpt() function.

    You have to use the_excerpt() in your theme.
