Affilotheme homepage question

On Affilotheme is there an option to have the homepage show summary of latest post like you can normally with a WP theme. When I try to do this under Settings > Reading it just shows every post fully on the homepage.

Hi,

This is actually controlled in each individual post.

In the post, there is a tag <-more-> that you can add right where you want your content to cut off. There is actually a little button at the top of the compose window that inserts the tag for you. So for example, if you would like the first paragraph to show on the homepage, put the more tag just below that paragraph in the post. Then when the visitor clicks on the post title or "read more" they will be able to see the entire post.

If you are using Affilotheme 3, you could go to Appearance > Theme Options and then, on the Whole Page tab, look for Choose a Homepage. Click on the dropdown and deselect the post you chose as your homepage and then save the changes. After that, your articles/posts will be appearing on your homepage.

Thanks for that, I had completely forgot about the <-more-> tag. For some reason I thought WP had a default cut off point for summaries.
