It would be really nice to have the topic description
also visible from the topic text page. As it is, you
have to go to the "topic properties" page all the time
just to see it. And sometimes you forget to do it and
start adding comments but the answer to the issues
raised might be already present in the topic description.

    Err, sorry, what is this about? I just don't understand at
    all, maybe some context would help me to see what do you mean.

    Thanks!

    Aaaargh, sorry, please ignore my last comment, I didn't
    notice that this was about codestriker (I thought it was
    about another project). Please just forget the last comment,
    it was pure noise.

    I like this.
    Can it perhaps be an option in the config file?

    Add this to the viewtopic.html.tmp (line 88) and you will have the topic description in the topic text page...

    <p>
    <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0">
    <tr>
    <td>Description:</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>[% description %]</td>
    </tr>
    </table>

    The main objection people had to having it on the topic view screen is real-estate. Often if you are viewing through the review a file at a time, its a pain to have to scroll past the description (especially if it is long) each time.

    If you can modify your patch so that by default, the description is invisible via CSS, but by clicking on a link, it can be made visible again, via CSS, then we can get the best of both worlds..
