I am using the brand new twenty eleven theme, my home page is set to show latest posts, but it displays the entire posts,

I want to only show the excerpts, not the entire content,

Here is the index.php code

<div id="content" role="main">

            <?php if ( have_posts() ) : ?>

                <?php twentyeleven_content_nav( 'nav-above' ); ?>

                <?php /* Start the Loop */ ?>
                <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>

                    <?php get_template_part( 'content', get_post_format() ); ?>

                <?php endwhile; ?>

                <?php twentyeleven_content_nav( 'nav-below' ); ?>

            <?php else : ?>

                <article id="post-0" class="post no-results not-found">
                    <header class="entry-header">
                        <h1 class="entry-title"><?php _e( 'Nothing Found', 'twentyeleven' ); ?></h1>
                    </header><!-- .entry-header -->

                    <div class="entry-content">
                        <p><?php _e( 'Apologies, but no results were found for the requested archive. Perhaps searching will help find a related post.', 'twentyeleven' ); ?></p>
                        <?php get_search_form(); ?>
                    </div><!-- .entry-content -->
                </article><!-- #post-0 -->

            <?php endif; ?>

            </div>

The template you're actually after is "content.php"

You'll want to change this line:

<?php if ( is_search() ) : // Only display Excerpts for Search ?>
<div class="entry-summary">
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
</div><!-- .entry-summary -->
<?php else : ?>
<div class="entry-content">
    <?php the_content( __( 'Continue reading <span class="meta-nav">&rarr;</span>', 'twentyeleven' ) ); ?>
    <?php wp_link_pages( array( 'before' => '<div class="page-link"><span>' . __( 'Pages:', 'twentyeleven' ) . '</span>', 'after' => '</div>' ) ); ?>
</div><!-- .entry-content -->
<?php endif; ?>

To this:

<?php if ( is_search() ) : // Only display Excerpts for Search ?>
<div class="entry-summary">
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
</div><!-- .entry-summary -->
<?php else : ?>
<div class="entry-content">
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    <?php wp_link_pages( array( 'before' => '<div class="page-link"><span>' . __( 'Pages:', 'twentyeleven' ) . '</span>', 'after' => '</div>' ) ); ?>
</div><!-- .entry-content -->
<?php endif; ?>

Note the change of the_content() to the_excerpt()

    wont that change the display for all pages and single posts to excerpt only ??? – Bainternet Jul 6 '11 at 6:22

Or you could use the <!--more--> tag to mark up to what point your posts should be displayed.

0

'' . __( 'Pages:', 'twentyeleven' ) . '', 'after' => '' ) ); ?>

I did the same, but while I click on listed post, it should display full post, but currently it is showing me excerpt rather than full post on single post page.
