  • Question

  • Is there any way I can have my announcements show the entire message and not just the few lines / paragraph preview?

  • Hi Scott,

    See if this blog post (excerpt below) helps with your query - this is written for MOSS 2007 but I would think still applies for 2010.

    Thank you!

    1. Go into the Announcements section by clicking on the title.
    2. Create a new view based on the existing default. I called mine "All items with Body"
    3. Make sure the 'body' column is checked, and select "Newsletter" under Style.
    4. Go back to your main page, and select 'edit shared web part' for the announcements section you're working on.
    5. Change the view to be the new view you just created and click OK.
