For excerpts, scroll to Post Excerpt or Summary Handling and make sure the checkbox is ticked for Posts/Blog Page.
Scroll even further down to Excerpt Length and remove the default 55, leaving it blank.
Now go to Dashboard > Settings > Reading and make sure that for For each article in a feed, show you have Summary selected. Save.
Go to Dashboard > Settings > Media and make sure you have an image size selected (the default is 150 wide and 150 high). Save.
Finally, go to Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks. Change nothing. Simply save.
Check and you should have thumbnails and excerpts working properly.

(I also had some lag in seeing the changes, probably due to cache issues).
I think I've solved the thumbnail mystery as well, but I don't like it. It appears that Pagelines uses the Featured image for the thumbnail. My previous theme had used the first image to set the thumbnail (or I could set a unique thumbnail via custom field.
Is there a way to set a thumbnail that's different from the Featured image?
