I have worked with wordpress in the past but never been the owner so I am a little confused. I want my front page to show summaries instead of the full post. My first post after my welcome post is showing the full article in the feed instead of just the first 55 words. How do I fix this? I have the summary option selected but it isn't working. Also I made a test post to see if it would work and it didn't either and it also didn't appear at the top as the newest post but was between my welcome post and the other. What do I need to do to make my new posts be at the top of the page?
The blog I need help with is leftstickdown.wordpress.com.
