There are old threads on this topic but most of them for MOSS or prior versions or without any resolutions. This thread is close but solution doesn't work for me. Feel free to forward any working link.
We upgraded from MOSS 2007 to SP 2010. We are using Announcement web part with much large Announcement text (tables etc.) which exceeds allowed size (250 char I think). Right now text truncates with "..."
I tried below:
- Edit Web part from SP Designer 2010 - apparently this was the solution in 2007 but there is no way to do it in 2010.
- Edit file C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\AnnouncementsList\Announce\schema.xml
- Edit Announcement List Settings -> Edit Title: change maximum number of characters. Error: Maximum number of characters must be between 1 and 255.
- No appropriate Web part property.
Is there any working solution to this problem for SP 2010 SP1? Thank you !!!
