How to change my full posts on the home page to summary posts

    I want to display just the summary of the latest posts on the front page, but instead it displays the full text. How do I change this? I changed the option in the Reading Settings from ‘full text’ to ‘summary’ but it stil displays the full text of posts.
    In coming across a similar program, I saw someone say to replace
    <?php the_content(); ?>
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    in my home.php or index.php . <–But I don’t know where to find that to replace it? Can someone tell me where? I definitely don’t understand website code like some people, but on Tumblr I’ve replaced certain codes with others, etc. I just don’t know where to find that on WordPress. Help?
    Same thing for my Archives. If someone clicks on my posts for October (for eg) in my archives, I want those be shown in summary too, but they’re not.
    I’d appreciate if someone could give me a step-by-step process or explanation, thank you!

    The blog I need help with is

    I guess that’ll work, thank you! :)



    It will definitely work because I have used it many times. You’re welcome and happy blogging.
