How to override the curtailed answer + "(more)" link in 0.7.49

The strong consensus at the Ask LibreOffice Askbot site, now running 0.7.49, is that the shortened answer + "(more)" link innovation makes for a very unsatisfactory UI.

There are several problems with it; for me, one of the worst is that you don't know what information had been offered in any given Q&A thread without opening EVERY "(more)" link on the page. This alone is extremely frustrating; there are other issues with it that I won't list here. In 0.7.49, they would just be hidden behind the "(more)" link anyway.

This leads to the basic question, then: how to get rid of it? Preferably this could be done at site level; minimally, it should be user configurable. Ideally (IMO, YMMV, yada yada) it should simply be removed altogether.

Run management command:

python generate_post_snippets

This will probably be included in the migrations by the next release.

@Evgeny - any idea when this might come along? It seems that fixing this is down to you! Thanks. ;)

Very long posts are wrapped (of course the notion of "very long" is relative - maybe it can be adjusted. I will investigate your concerns. Thanks.
