I have a site that I have developed that allows visitors to submit/upload their own entries.
They fill in a form to do so, which then gets outputted onto the site.
One of the fields is a 'description' field. This is a text area of any length.
When outputting this on the site, it obviously has an effect on the design, as one entry might have 2 sentences as a description, and another 10 paragraphs.
I'm looking for the best way to make these a bit more uniform, and I am considering limiting the output of the description field to 2-3 sentences and then any more will have a link to open the full description field in a modal.
What do you think are the pro's and con's of this?
