Twenty Twelve: Allow excerpts, if present, on index pages
|Reported by:||kwight||Owned by:|
It is possible for users to enter and save excerpts for posts, yet never see them because of the theme's sole use of the_content() for index pages (blog, archives). This is confusing at best, and frustrating at worst, for users wanting to take advantage of crafted excerpts to represent their posts.
By conditionally using the_excerpt() when an excerpt is present, users gain control, on a post-by-post basis, of their summaries. Simply using the <!--more--> tag is not sufficient as it only provides a cut-off point in the content, rather than allowing custom excerpts.
