prb displaying excerpt on loop.php

  1. Hi,

    Here is my problem, i'd like to display only the excerpt of the posts in my home page. Now according to http://lorelle.wordpress.com/2006/07/19/display-post-excerpts-only-in-wordpress/, i'd need to change from the_content() to the_excerpt in the following pages:
    * index.php
    * archives.php
    * archive.php
    * category.php
    * search.php

    Now to display the posts, the blog i'm working on has a strange system of loop. And each of these pages are calling this loop.php. So i thought that changing it in loop.php would make it... well, it didn't!

    Help please, i just want to display the excerpts and not the entire content!
