    The 'list item' has a built in title field. Is it possible to add a description to this?

    I'm not sure I follow, it already has title, image, link, & description as the default fields if you don't change them with the UI builder or through code.

    I'll add a filter to be able to add descriptions for the title. The reason it doesn't exist is it's a required field with a certain ID so the title will auto populate above. It will be in the next update, but that will not be out till early next week as I have other work pulling me away at the moment.

    Cool. I was only asking if it was possible as I thought I missed something!

    No, you didn't miss anything. It's just a required field and I didn't want devs to break it, so I locked it down. The description however isn't that crucial and can be opened up for change.

    I'm using javascript to actually hide the title field for List Item, leaving the item title above blank (which could be generated automatically like "Item 1", "Item 2" etc.).

    I must say that it is frustrating to have fields that we can't get ride of like this. I want the simplest experience for my users, and for the images slider I want them to upload images, and I don't want them to be confused with a "Title" field wondering where the text will display or whatever, I just want them to see the file upload field only!!! I do have additional fields below to enter an optional description, but the FIRST FIELD is and MUST ABSOLUTELY BE FOR SIMPLENESS SAKE the file upload field and not a weird "Title" field!

    That said, I also find the inability to put HTML in the field labels really sad, again for my images slider I want to have a "Description" field but I want to name it "Description (optional)" but I just can't! Can't put HTML in the field label WHY SO MUCH RESTRICTION for fields supposed to be edited by developers only!
