      Description

      On a user's Overview page, there is an options button for MOTD. The options here allow the user to toggle between showing the MOTD subject or body. If body is selected, the user can select to show one line, two lines, or all lines. 

      If a user sets these options to limit the display of the MOTD, there is not an easy way to view the full MOTD if they look at the subject or first line and feel it is important. The user has to go back to Options, toggle it back to body - all lines, and update. Then, if they don't want to continue to see the entire message, reverse those steps. 

      I would like to see a "View Announcement" link or button appear below the subject or the first 1-2 lines if the user has set the Options for MOTD to show anything other than announcement body - all lines. This should display the entire message, with a corresponding "Close Announcement" link or button at the bottom to return to the user's selected view. 

      If MOTD is expected to include important information for users, and we have the option for users to restrict what they see of this, there should be an easy way for users to view the entire message.
