#1789 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Videos in plugin description get cut off

Reported by: philipjohn's profile philipjohn Owned by: dd32's profile dd32
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords:


In the new plugin directory, if a plugin uses a video at the start of the plugin directory it gets cut off by the "Read More" feature.

This looks broken at first, until you realise it's just hidden. Not a bug in itself, but a UI weirdness. We perhaps need to be able to have an "excerpt" for that first snippet, but that's probably not an easy solution.

See for an example, and the attached screenshot.

So we probably need to autodetect if a video is starting off the Details section and resize the area to fit. We'll have to know the default sizes of the various video platforms we support.

In 4385:

Plugin Directory: Expand the initial description to show the full contents of any embed/videos present in the first paragraph/div.
This fixes cases where descriptions start with a video, and caused the controls to be hidden below the fold.

Fixes #1789.
