Support longer, multi-line collection descriptions
Open, WishlistPublic



Users should be able to enter multi-line descriptions for their blogs. Also:

  • Make URLs clickable
  • Render Markdown (?) Probably not, imagine people adding images etc.


One user has requested this in the past -- especially the clickable links. Otherwise we've seen this is the way people are actually using the description field.


Was just reminded of this after seeing the Standard Notes blogging platform, called Listed:


  • Change the description field to a textarea from a text input.
  • Change description column to VARCHAR(255) from VARCHAR(160)
