Whenever I try out a new theme, I select it depending upon preview, which shows latest posts on Home Page, having only trimmed content with featured image and not all long post content.

However, when I install the theme on my test system, the preview shows full length content, instead of the preview.

How can I solve this problem?

Just change it to:


P.S.: If you can't find the_content() in the mentioned file, try searching content.php, and in this case, change it with caution. Because in theme TwentyTwelve, it's used with conditional tags for different pages.
