Is it possible to make the standard field "Ad Detail" a NOT-Required field?
In our case the main title as well as extra fields take care of all the details.

Would be willing to edit plugin. Just need to know if I can without breaking it and maybe a nudge in the right direction.

Or even a way to add a default value, like a period to all new listings?

Hi Ronin,

Thanks for your question.

Thanks for your patience here while we have been working on this issue for you. I have asked our developer to be sure, but I believe this field is required and cannot be removed. I'll let you know if there is a workaround for this!

Hi Ronin,

Thanks for your patience here while we have been working on this issue for you.

The developer has clarified that the field cannot be removed. However, since you are using Extra Fields, I think we can manage a workaround for this. 

You can change the name of the Ad Details field with a translation file ( https://awpcp.com/quick-start-guide/#qs-translate;awpcptrans

and then use custom CSS to adjust the height of the textarea:

textarea [ name="ad_details" ] {      height: 40px;  }

That way, you can replace the Ad Details field with one of the fields you have created using Extra Fields.

That's the best solution I can offer you at this time. Please try that and let me know if you run into more issues.
