Comment (by Sheriziya):

 You're welcome :)

 Do I understand it correctly than, that the content-excerpt (comment in
 that template says: Template part for displaying posts with excerpts) is
 only for the feeds and NOT for the blog page? Shouldn't the template say
 that it is for feeds, instead of a blog page?

 Just trying to understand the theme here better :) Especially since
 several more users seem to think the same thing as I, the blog page should
 display the excerpts.
 Additionally, I checked the archive page and the category page, but the
 excerpt doesn't show there either.
 The Search results gives both the manual summary I've set (without a
 "Continue reading link") AND the summary made up of the first 55
 words..... (with a wrong "Continue reading link" ->  leads to the main
 page, instead of the post). Why display both summaries? There's no logic
 in that.

 The feed does indeed give the summary as it's supposed to do. I just
 checked that.

 I could have sworn I'd had a bundled theme with summaries, but perhaps
 that was on wordpress.com (where I've got a few old blogs).

 I hope this confusing problem can be solved, cause at the moment it's
 pretty confusing.

 Thank you!
