    They're there. Click the title and you'll see the entire post.

    Apparently, your archives are using the_excerpt instead of the_content.

    i use wp-andreas01-12 and i changed my archives to display full pics, etc, by changing the_except to the_content in the file archive.php worked great

    i want to do the opposite for my main page, but when i changed the_content to the_excerpt on the file page.php, it didnt change... any idea why?

    found it... needed index.php

    thanks guys. solved the problem.
    out of curiosity, if i want to display a summary of my post in the front page, then i change the_content to the_excerpt in the index.php file?

    bobby89, that's one approach, yep.

    But it may have some ripples, depending on your theme. Some themes use index.php to not only display the front page, but also archives, single view, pages, etc. Which can be a pain.
    See Template_Hierarchy for a bit more on that.

    There's also the <!--more--> tag.
