  1. I've searched the forum and it appears that most questions re: excerpts are asking how to convert them to full posts.

    I want the opposite. How do I get the posts on my front page to only display excerpts?

    Thanks in advance. I hope this question isn't redundant because I coudln't find an answer anywhere.

  2. @thexander: This is probably what you're looking for: http://forums.themeshaper.com/topic/adding-a-loop#post-3684

    As I understand it, Thematic has a custom filter called thematic_content (found in content-extensions.php) and assuming you're ok with conditional tags, you can choose whether to display the full post, the excerpt or nothing.

    Chris explains it more fully in the link above.

  3. Hi thexander,

    Try this:

    function childtheme_content($content) {
    	if ( is_home () ) {
    		$content= 'excerpt';}
    	return $content;
    }
    add_filter('thematic_content', 'childtheme_content');

    Thanks Gene. I had been looking for that code. I didn't know how to and what to change. But @Flick referred to me here from http://forums.themeshaper.com/topic/full-posts-showing-up-on-homepage#post-11353. Thank again!
