Longer descriptions of contributors


I’d like to add a brief vita for every contributor (something about 250 letters). Which attribute can I use for this purpose? In the podlove documentation I found contributor.comment. Is this the public comment I can add in the contributor settings within an episode? If so I have to add the comment in every episode the contributor is participating in, right?

Best regards,

Yes it is.

Yea, that’s not really how it’s intended to be used. One possible scenario is to give a context to guests. And depending on the topic discussed, a different comment can be used. A person may be an expert in various fields, but only one is relevant in an episode.

Anyway, as of right now there is no generic description / vita field. We have long been talking about deprecating the “Affiliation” section. I guess it would make sense to replace it with a more generic free text field.

Thanks for your answer. If you come to the point that you add a free text field it would be great if it was HTML-enabled for links to Wikipedia, papers etc.
