comment get all page templates
You had a good idea with the snipppet you posted. I forgot you could do that. I also forgot about the home issue. Thanks for pointing that out. That could be a big part of my issue. including a page, single and category.php is what I am trying now. So far so good.

comment get all page templates
I checked the template hierarchy. Everything defaults back to the index.php file which is what I want. I guess my confusion came in when "The Loop" didn't supply all posts. There are a lot missing.

I tried removing the conditional before posting and it still didn't work. I don't know what the issue is. Most everything the codex says does not work in this template. I am wondering if it is because I am running multiple custom loops in the site and the query doesn't know which query to filter or something. I tried your option 2 with the custom function and that seems to work good. So I am just going to use that. thank you for posting.

I am using the excerpt box under the post box in the edit post page. all reading suggests that adding more than 55 words or even adding the filter will then add a link to read more. The codex says that the_excerpt() does not automatically add a read more link so you need to add the code for a button under the excerpt which I have done. I have added the filter to limit the words to 20 but when I paste more than 55 words in the excerpt box, the entire text shows and I can't see the button because it breaks layout and is hidden. This is a page template. Does it matter it's not the home page?

@brasofilo Thanks for the links. There is some very good information in them. I did not know about the WordPress.tv site. I plan on spending some time there and I signed up for the wordcamp information.

comment How to know which one is the main query?
nope. Still didn't do it for me. Obviously the query that I was changing with pre_get_posts wasn't the main query. But then that still leaves the question. If that wasn't the main query, which one is? The loop is the standard loop. I didn't use query_posts, get_posts or wp_query. Rather the_loop does but why is that loop not the main query? Not sure I am explaining myself correctly. I don't like those little slide shows you linked to. They usually leave a lot of information. Like they are cliff notes that someone wrote up for a speech. If you miss the speech you can't follow along very well.
