I'm using the
<!--more--> tag in sideposts with a thumbnail photo to create a sidebar excerpt.
When someone clicks read more the post will expand in the main content area to show the original sidepost "excerpt" content plus some additional text and a full-size version of the thumbnailed photo.
My issue is that the more tag doesn't stay intact when someone opens the post to read more and the full size image shows in both the sidepost and expanded post.
Is there anyway to truncate what shows in the sidepost so it only shows content prior to more tag regardless of if the post is open or not?
Example: first sidepost on http://www.yikesmachine.com/
