I am trying to use the_excerpt() to display excerpts of my posts (instead of the full posts) on my home page. I have followed the instructions in some other threads and replaced the_content() with the_excerpt() on my index.php page but it does not work (I still get the full post). FYI, the more tag did not work for me either (although I did not troubleshoot fully), but I prefer to use the excerpt function.
I have found conflicting information as to whether this theme (Vigilance) supports excerpts, can someone help me?
Thanks in advance.
