The Movie Database Support

Hi.

I'm a bit confused and worried... How can I make a newline in the textarea of an actors bio?

If I edit or add the birthday or some other data of an actor and there is already a bio written I totally ruin the bio field when I save the changes.

For example:

Biography before edit:

blablabla

blablabla

blablabla

Biography after edit (although I never touched this field!): blablabla blablabla blablabla

I tried to add "\n" or html tags, but I can't make a manual line break. Is there a possibility?

With a recent change to the editing tools the ability to add line breaks was accidentally removed. This will be getting restored, there's a ticket for it here.

The ability to add line breaks in biographies was restored this morning.

Thanks.

this has been removed again, correct?

Line breaks are supported on people biographies. They are not supported on movie overviews.

Would you reconsider for sporting events like boxing or MMA? (can we add a Sports Genre as well to differentiate between when a line break is appropriate or not?). It's not like a movie summary where it has to be long/verbose. Smith vs Jones John vs Doe etc. Maybe A maximum number of total lines to be sure to keep it from being too long. Otherwise it's a run on sentence and doesn't really give a good overview of the event. Just a suggestion. Thanks for the reply. Site is awesome

You can make it a proper... "opsomming" I don't know the English word, and too lazy for Google translate, but I mean like, make it something like: "In this ~episode, or whatever~ the following matches will be played: Smith vs. Jones; John vs. Doe; A vs. B and X vs Y."

That doesn't look too bad, right? _^

Hi meat-ball,

I don't have any plans on changing this at this time, the best thing you can do is re-jigger the overview to include the fights in a more human readable way like Marr mentioned.

Cheers.

it's definitely not a bad idea. It's not as clean/ideal but far from a huge deal. Thanks

I think it improves readability :P A list for a synopsis or overview is just ugly. Try to construct proper sentences :-)
