|The %%submission%% variable is there because using a text-field-box creates HTML problems when working with the Template Manager. You are welcome to use your own submission box (manually inserting the box HTML code into the template(s)).
This way you can resize or use the style that you have in mind for it. Note that you will have to manually open the 'Add Url' template with your Web Editor. Do this by opening the relevant 'Add URL' Template file or files. You can get the file names of the 'Add Url' templates from the template manager, by clicking to edit the templates 'Add URL' templates. The template files are .html files and all of them are located inside your 'data' directory. You can find out where the PowerSeek 'data' directory is located by going to the Control Panel >> Home tab >> Configuration Info
Once you have opened the 'Add Url' template, add your own text-field-box to the 'Add Url' form and name it: 'description' - It is very important that the box name is 'description' - without the quotes off-course. Remember that you will have to remove %%submission%% from the template.
If you want to change the number of characters that's allowed to be submitted by end-users, click on the settings tab when in the Control Panel. Then click on the 'Global Engine Settings' link. Look for a setting that reads: 'Maximum Number of Description Characters'
