How to use only one description area when submitting ads

In some cases it's good to allow users to add two different descriptions (intro and full) - this way they have better control over what's visible in the advert's list/blog layout and can use the intro description like a meta description you can find for example in Google SERP.

However in other cases it's more convenient to let your users add only one description for the item/advert rather than adding intro description and full description.

In this tutorial you'll learn how easily you can leave only one description area for the advert to fill so it's quicker solution for the advertisers.

Let's see how to remove the short description from description in DJ-Classifieds adverts.

Open DJ-Classifieds component and go to options "Global" tab. Change the "Use intro description" to "No".
