    lol you don't need a plugin to do this, just open your theme file and find

    Code:
    the_content();
    replace with

    Code:
    the_excerpt();

    An excerpt is exactly that a snippet of the full content which is what the_excerpt tweak does, what way do you want it then?

    Fair enough, i just don't understand bloating your blog, introducing another potential vulnerability and something more to update when you can just change a simple word from "content" to "excerpt".

    Meh whatever works i guess.
