    How can you display on the main page of the wp blog only a few lines from every post?
    I choosed the option to display part of the post in my blog, but it still shows every post :confused:

    thanks !:)

    Find the code in your home.php file that says this:

    <?php the_content(__('Read more'));?>

    and replace with this:

    <?php the_excerpt(__('Read more'));?>

    Not really - there are a few ways to accomplish this feature. Take a look at this page on my site, and you'll see I've done something similar. The way I've done it I am able to tell how many characters I want the excerpt to be.

    In a few themes, it comes automatically.

    You are talking about fininforums blog?
    In that Almost Spring theme, that one has to be changed.

    I had that theme before but now http://www.chattous.com
    This theme is great now.
