I've installed the link_roll extension and have a couple of questions.

I see in the code that the model expands the tag <r:links:each:link /> to
  %{<a href="#{link.url}" title="#{link.description}">#{link.title}</a>}

In most blogs that would be something like a bullet list in the sidebar.

But when I create a link_roll link in the admin I notice that while the
'title' is a single line, the 'url' and the 'description' are text areas.

If this was a page I can imagine long pieces of text about the link
(which is often a good idea), but not in a sidebar.

And why a text area for the URL?  Why not a scrolling single line field?

Am I missing something here?

So I went back to experiment.  What if I put multiple lines in the 'url'
text area?

Well, what I got was a 500.

Why is there a "/link/" and a "/links/" ?
