    Hi,

    Is there a way to cut very long posts short after X characters and have a ..read more.... linky thing that will expand the whole text when clicked.

    You can use the helper snippet:

    {xen:helper snippet, $post.message, 150}

    Which 150 is the lenght of caracters.

    Yes, I like to test how it would work in all posts.
    Due to the nature of our subject we get VERY LONG posts,
