Has anyone downloadedthe shortlist app template and customized it to enable the feature description content panel to display images and web page links ?

Out of the box just enables plain text (content stored in descrption field in the feature layer.)

In other words I would like the content panel to be more like that in the Journal app template.

Any suggestions welcome.

Thank you very much for the tips.  If I build a shortlist from scratch using the builder, it's not possible to add html tags.

But using your links I found that if I use the CSV template to create a feature class, it offers 5 description fields and these can be populated with html tags directly to include images, hyperlinks etc.  This is called the 'as is' option as described here. Esri Story Maps - FAQ 

The template and field descriptions can be downloaded with this :

And here's a tip to ensure your images fit nicely into any size of detail panel.  Use the max_width property with a calculation  :

<img style="max-width: calc(100% - 20px);" src="...your image url..." alt=" ">
