Textareas in cells?

Feature Request

Awesome add-on!

It would really be great to have the option of making the cells textareas to allow for longer content. Any workarounds for that or plans to add in the future?

I’ve got a beta that needs tested which will allow text inputs, textareas and checkboxes.

Can you email me your Nolan licence numbers and your Github usernames and I’ll add you to the repo if you want to test.

Hey iain would it be possible to have custom field types.  What I’m looking for specifically is a table like: text_input | wygwam

that would be great!
and that brigs another question to the horizon:
what do all custom field types have in common? isn’t that they all have to work in SAEF, safecracker or channel form, or whatever you call it?
why not go that route?

It’d be nice if it was possible to use Select fields too.

I’ve just pushed Nolan 2.4 to Devot-EE which includes new textarea and checkbox celltypes, and also a new vertical layout option.

Let me know how you go.
