    How to change from full article to summary
    I have been going around and around with this. In my settings, in the reading section, I clicked the setting for summary instead of full article but nothing I do actually produces that result. Can you help me? What am I doing wrong?

    Here you go:

    The setting you are adjusting affects how your RSS feed goes out, not how the posts look on your blog.

    For each article in a feed you can select Full text or Summary. Full text means that the entire contents of a post are included in the feed. Summary means that only the first 55 words are included in the feed, along with the option to continue reading the rest of the post.

    Thank you. That helps. Can I ask you something else? Do you know why when you are creating a page of links; sometimes the links are highlighted blue and other times they stay black…?

    In the Coraline theme links that have not been clicked are blue. The hover color is red. When links have been clicked they change color from blue to black. That’s the way the theme is designed and it cannot be changed without purchasing an annually renewable custom design upgrade and doing the required CSS editing.

    Humm… Well I’ll check that out. Thank you for your time and help.
