  4. You should find the following code:

    {if Tools::strlen($category->description) > 350}
    <div id="category_description_short">{$description_short}</div>
    <div id="category_description_full" class="unvisible">{$category->description}</div>

  5. You should completely remove these lines from the code:

    <div id="category_description_short">{$description_short}</div>
    
    <a href="{$link->getCategoryLink($category->id_category, $category->link_rewrite)|escape:'html':'UTF-8'}" class="lnk_more">{l s='More'}</a>
    
  6. Then you should edit this line:

    class="unvisible">
    

    and replace it with this one:

    class="visible">
    
  7. Please note that there are 2 instances of the same code in the file. You should edit both instances.
