Field Types / Textarea field

Note: You are currently reading the documentation for Bolt 4.0. Looking for the documentation for Bolt 5.2 instead?

Simple text-input, for multi-line fields.

Basic Configuration:

            type: textarea

Example usage in templates:

{{ record.content }}


The field has a few options to change the functionality of the field.

  • allow_twig can be set to true or false to control if twig may be used in the field
  • pattern Use this to validate the field against a certain pattern.
  • placeholder Placeholder text inside the input control.

Input Sanitisation

All content in this field type will be sanitised before it gets inserted into the database. This means that only 'whitelisted' HTML like <b> and <img src="…"> is kept, while things like <embed> and <script> are scrubbed from the field before being stored. As a site-implementor you can control the whitelisted tags and attributes using the following section in config.yaml:

    allowed_tags: [ div, span, p, br, hr, s, u, strong, em, i, b, li, ul, ol, …, … ]
    allowed_attributes: [ id, class, style, name, value, href, src, alt, title, …, … ]

To disable sanitisation for this field, you can add sanitise: false to the field config, like so:

            type: textarea
            sanitise: false
