difference between Widget Exporer and Discover
The "Download New Widgets" explorer" reachable through the "Add Widgets" side panel cuts off the widget description. It should show the full widget description like Discover does.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Search for a widget on Discover and the Widget Explorer
2. Compare descriptions between those two
See attached image for a widget example. Said widget with text on store.kde.org: https://store.kde.org/p/2086390/
The Widget Explorer doesn't show the full widget description.
The Widget Explorer should show the full widget description similar to Discover.
Operating System: EndeavourOS
KDE Plasma Version: 5.27.8
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.110.0
Qt Version: 5.15.10
Kernel Version: 6.5.5-2-cachyos (64-bit)
Graphics Platform: Wayland
Often the widget description includes valuable information about features and/or advanced steps for setting up the widget. Cutting off that information is rather unfortunate.
Thank you for the bug report!
However Plasma 5.25.4 is no longer eligible for support or maintenance from KDE; supported versions are 5.27, and 5.27 or newer. Please upgrade to a supported version as soon as your distribution makes it available to you. Plasma is a fast-moving project, and bugs in one version are often fixed in the next one.
If you need support for Plasma 5.25.4, please contact your distribution, who bears the responsibility of providing support for older releases that are no longer supported by KDE.
If you can reproduce the issue after upgrading to a supported version, feel free to re-open this bug report.
This was a filing error (assuming the version bugtracker dropdown was defaulting to the latest release). This is an issue on the currently latest 5.27.8.
Ugh, you're right; can reproduce in Frameworks 6 too. We should not be truncating content here.
I can reproduce this on self-built Qt6.6.
It seems like the views are not getting updated correctly, with a lot of extra un-filtered empty items at the end. Changing the view mode fixes this temporarily for the current filter.
Beside that, the sorting selector does not get applied to the views nor to the menu (it stays showing `Recent Items`).
My bad, replied on the wrong bug report. Please Nate, mark this comment and the previous one as spam.

EntryDetails: Update entry contents when showing the details page
When showing the details page for an entry, we were just using
the data fetched on the previous search that included this entry.
This information is more limited:
- it does not include all the fields (ex. the donations link)
- the description is capped to only 300 characters
Now we retrive the detailed content for the information and update
the model and the view fields accordingly.
