Merci Frédéric!
It took me a while to find the more button, but I get it now.

C'e n'etait pas grave!

> Excerpt is a content that will appear on the "list" pages (home, category,

> is a ticket open for this issue. Next release is due this week-end according
> our roadmap. This is the last known bug we have to fix before this, so
> expect things to work when we release. Expect also some more documented UI
> where it makes sense at that time.
