There’s a new update for Tiny Theme that adds one of the most requested features. There’s now a separate plugin available that will enable summary/truncated posts on your home page instead of full posts. This is only triggered when your post has a title (meaning it will never summarize microposts).

@Mtt The plugin requires Tiny Theme 1.5.1. It works automatically once enabled, there's not even a setting screen. All full length posts will be truncated. You can (optionally) choose the truncation point of a particular post by adding a more tag wherever you'd like.

@Mtt Will the placement of the more tag override the truncation point of the default?

@pratik Yep.

@Mtt Can we use these plugins for a non-Tinytheme theme? 😬

@pratik The Fathom one and Browser Color one should be compatible with the majority of themes. Unfortunately, the only way I could figure out how to make the Summary one reliable and seamless was to make it specifically for Tiny as it basically rewrites an entire file.

@Mtt Full posts forever if we don't install the plugin, right? Please.

@Mtt I finally got some time to install Tiny Theme. Love it. Can't wait to play around and maybe customize it a bit when I have some time.

@Mtt No worries. I can perhaps hard-code it into my theme. I’m very tempted to try out Tinytheme but don’t have the bandwidth right now for the tinkering that I’m sure to do.

@pratik It’s pretty straight forward in most cases. Let me know if you get stuck.

@Mtt Awesome! Thanks for the great work. Any chance to enable this also for Category pages?

@svbck Completely missed that. I just pushed an update out to it with a fix. Should reach everyone within 2 hours (typically less).

@birming You can do it manually. I can walk you through the steps if needed.

@birming On second thought, I think I have some time today to enable that for the plugin.

Update: This has been added to the plugin. Update to version 1.1.0 to easily change the text.

This is great. I think it would be helpful to add this sentence to the settings page for the plug-in.
