I'm using SharePoint 2007,

and I'm using the announcement web part. I have writed long description in the announcement web part.

the default possibility, sharepoint display 3 line from the announcement within the page and in order to read all the rest I need to enter the announcement.

  1. How can I dispaly all the announcement in the site page?
  2. Can control the announcement background and border color?
  3. How can I let a few users add announcements and prevent all the rest for doing it?

  1. You can create your own views to show the full body of the announcement. You can even do something like this content slider I wrote on NothingbutSharePoint.
  2. To control the BG color, you'll need to find the class that is applied to the announcement background and override the style with a CEWP and style tags.
  3. Give the desired users who you want to add announcements contribute permissions to the list and give everyone else read permissio.
