Excerpts on homepage not working

I switched "Posts or excerpts on HOME page?" to "only excerpts" and 1 in "Show the first X posts on HOME page as full posts?" in Post or Excerpts options, but on my homepage there are still full posts instead of excerpts.

How can I fix that?

Wordpress 2.7.1

Question: There are two threads on this subject, (this one and http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=1835) with, apparently, different fixes. Which is correct? Or are both required? I'm running into this issue right now. But I don't want to over-correct the code.

Thanks in advance.

I'd go with the earlier one. I was unaware of the earlier one when I opened the second.

Juggledad,

Thank you for getting back to me on this so quickly. It helps a huge amount to have an experienced pro like yourself on board.

Juggledad,

Permit me one more "newbie" question before I put the fix found at this link to good use:
http://forum.bytesforall.com/showpos...8&postcount=11

Which index.php?

There are multiple index.php's under my root:

/index.php
/wp-admin/index.php <-- pretty sure I can ignore this one
/wp-content/index.php <-- probably not, but ...
/wp-content/themes/atahualpa333/index.php <-- presumed candidate but you now how presumptions and assumptions go

Thanks in advance.

P.S. How does one go about reporting spam comments on this forum. Got one this evening.

What was it some comedian used to say? ... "Neeevvvveeerrrr Mind".

It was late so I figured no one would be on the board so I did what I should have done in the first place: look. For someone's future reference:

root/index.php <-- just loads wp-blog-header.php ...
root/wp-admin/index.php <-- seems to be strictly for the dashboard (makes sense)
root/wp-content/index.php <-- almost as empty as one can get and still have a .php script
root/wp-content/themes/atahualpa333/index.php <-- the target index.php file

But, my question on spam replies on the forum still stands.

Thanks in advance.

Applied the http://forum.bytesforall.com/showpos...8&postcount=11 patches to index.php and bfa_post_parts.php ... and ... it works superbly.

Actually, better than expected because I wasn't anticipating the fixed excerpt logic for the Home page to use the Edit Post --> Excerpt text. I "assumed" it would do a teaser version.

Thank you Flynn, and Juggledad.

I seem to be having the opposite problem. I switched my "Posts or excerpts on HOME page" from "full posts" to "excerpts" which worked fine on the front-end but then I tried switching back and I noticed that in the back-end settings it was already reverted to "full posts" even though excerpts were showing on front-end. I tried toggling this setting back and forth but now the back-end setting is stuck on "full posts" and the front-end is stuck showing excerpts! Any ideas?
