It can be nice to enable/disable displaying projects descriptions in project list. Now the "Project description"
is not required field (thanx JPLang) but sometimes it's still usefull field, but some users (like me) would like to
see project description only on homepage of project itself, not in projects list.

Maybe this could be implemented with a duplication of this description field.

One type of description field (for project list for example) and one type of "welcome message" or something like this which is displayed on the home page of the project itself instead of the project description?

Progressive Projects List plugin solves this issue and adds some other cool features.

If you just want to get rid of the descriptions in the project list, and you don't need it configurable, use the Custom CSS plugin ( http://www.redmine.org/plugins/redmine_custom_css ) with the following CSS rule:

div#projects-index div.wiki.description { display: none; }

The field is now configurable in Projects page when the list view is used. For board view, we can make this configurable if we move to cards (#32350).
