However, I want to keep the index page of the blog as it is (full posts displayed). Is this possible? Thanks.

Open up loop-archive.php and replace: the_content(__('Read more →','avia_framework')); with: the_excerpt(); echo '<a class="more-link" href="'.get_permalink().'">Read more →</a>'; June 21, 2012 at 3:37 pm #79425 ColinHunterParticipant Awesome!
