    In index.php, find <?php the_content(); ?> and replace with <?php the_excerpt(); ?>. That should work for full width posts or a side by side layout, depending on your theme.

    much respect

    i couldn’t trouble you for how to have ‘Read more:[name of the post]’ added below the excerpts like this site below, could i?

    <?php the_excerpt("Read More: " . get_the_title('', '', false)); ?>

    from Customizing the Read More.

    this didn’t seem to make a difference – thanks anyway

    i reverted to the <?php the_content(); ?> code, and used the EverMore plugin someone somewhere else reccommended


    actually… changed my mind again…

    … had a look at the Customizing the Read More docs page and realised that
    <?php the_excerpt(“Read More: ” . get_the_title(”, ”, false)); ?>

    should be
    <?php the_content(“Read More: ” . get_the_title(”, ”, false)); ?>

    (for anyone else who searches for this info later on)
