    I would like WP to show only the summary of the posts, and then link to the full posts. I currently have my setting in "Options" "Reading" set to: "For each article, show: Summary", but I only get the fully story. I am currently using the Rounded 1.0 by Ghyslain Armand if that makes any difference..I have been having this problem with all other themes I have tried out. In the Main Index Template I tried replacing "<?php the_content(__('(more...)')); ?>" with "<?php the_cexcerpt(__('(more...)')); ?> ". But, while my posts were all turned to summaries, the images disappeared, and there was no link to the full story. What am I doing wrong??

    That's under "SYNDICATION" and, as you might guess, only affects your feeds.

    the_excerpt is indeed what you want. Read more about it: http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/the_excerpt

    Remember that with most rational themes, the title is always a link to the full post.

    If you want more options, have a look at this plugin: http://guff.szub.net/2005/02/26/the-excerpt-reloaded/
