A constant complaint here is the useless resource summary field, esp. for text or html resources.
It seems just like busy work to have to enter something in here, and have it not show up. Its nice as an option, but it is a pain to have it required.
No big problem, I thought, I'll just add a default value of a ' ' to the summary column in mdl_resources.
By MySQL says:
#1101 - BLOB column 'summary' can't have a default value
So is there anyway to make the resource summary skippable?
Tired of advising faculty to put a space in here if they don't feel like typing up an invisible summary for their syllabus!
