Subject: [OpenGuides-Dev] Wishlist: summary field
What would be really, really nice would be to have a new metadata field
called "Summary", which would be used for one-line summaries of the content
of nodes. This could then be included in the output of "nearby" listings and
make them much more useful.
1. _The Dog and Handgun, WC4X 1AA_ (144 metres away)
"Crap pub full of angry drunkards, avoid"
2. _International Museum of Fish_ (270 metres away)
"Fascinating attraction for all fish lovers"
3. _Marmalade City_ (312 metres away)
"Department store for all things marmalade-related"
I think that this is a good idea. Also, this information could be
made available to the RDF/XML feed as <dc:description>,
whereas the actual "content" is not (which contains wiki markup
and HTML tags).
