Folding or shortening of long quotes/messages in trac

Some tickets are very long and contain countless full uncut quotes of ffmpeg. Its sometimes hard to read/follow such tickets. Some way to fold/hide or shorten to the first/last few lines each long message might be helpfull to get a overview of a ticket

Do you have a particular ticket number in mind? We could probably make a Trac plugin. I don't see anything in PluginList fitting your description, but I didn't search beyond that for an existing implementation.

It would probably be easier if all reporters used the code block/preformatted text, but unfortunately this is not the case.

There is some collapse/expand, show/hide functionality in trac that could possibly be ripped-off, such as on each ticket: "Modify Ticket" and "Attachments".

Is this report still relevant?

Using the code block is sufficient (for me at least). Too many other more important things to do than implement something to expand/collapse console outputs.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
