Twenty Thirteen
[resolved] Using page of posts as home page, how to limit to excerpts? (2 posts)

    I have a Twenty Thirteen child theme and have a page of posts by category set up for the home page.

    I'm limiting it to three posts, and would like the first one to be full, while the others are excerpts, but I can't figure out how to do it.

    Other posts I've read here talk about making changes around '<?php the_content(); ?>', but Twenty Thirteen doesn't have that in its suggested Page of Posts (pageofposts.php), which I found at http://codex.wordpress.org/Page_Templates

    How can I set this up? Thanks for any help.

    Ok, the reason I had switched to a page of posts static page was that when I changed to restricting the home page to a category, it stopped showing the slider on top.

    But in another post I was told that the general recommended way to do this is via 'pre_get_posts' action, as explained here:

    So I did that and it resolved my problem, so I'm marking this resolved.
