 > Hi @Sheriziya, thanks for the ticket!
 > > The bundled theme 2017 doesn't show the excerpts despite setting the
 reading settings to show a summary on the feed.
 > The option in Reading Settings only applies to RSS feeds and does not
 affect the front-end appearance (which is completely controlled by the
 theme), see #22049.
 > FWIW, previous bundled themes didn't have an option to switch between
 full text and excerpt either.

 But would it be that big a thing to add it? If I do a search the results
 return summaries with read more tags, so the code is already in the theme.
 I'm fairly technical but it seems a lot of work for each one of us to
 create a child theme and files when the basic template could add a couple
 of lines of code and fix the confusion.
