Tutorial :Drupal: CCK ImageField, multi-line description



Question:

I'm using CCK Image field (multi-images) and for each image I have the "Description" field, where I can add the image description.

I was wondering if I can have multi-line description, instead of only one line.

(Even using some specific symbol to go next line)

thanks


Solution:1

If you are wanting a textarea instead of a textfield for the image description field, the only way to do this would be to create a custom module that creates a compound field. There is a really great tutorial on the state of compound fields in Drupal and how to create one here: http://poplarware.com/articles/cck_field_module.

Alternatively, if you only have one image you are uploading, you could disable the description on the image field and create an additional CCK textarea to be used as the description.


Solution:2

When you create CCK imagefield, there is a setting called "Title text settings", where you can set the checkbox "Enable custom title text" and select Input type: textarea instead of textfield.

So now there is nothing you must to specially to make a multiply description for your every imagefield.
