I'm trying to get excerpts to appear on the front page by adding in the function get_recent_posts of the custom-functions.php:
<p><?php the_excerpt(); ?></p>
just before (around lines 471):
<h3>option_value; ?>"><?php echo $options->option_value; ?></h3>
But when I do it, for some reason it gives me the same excerpt from only one post and uses that one excerpt for all the other posts.
