@DenisChenu, we are using a textarea for defining the template footer details at our themes via a theme option. That works fine using this code:

<div class='row'>
<div class='col-sm-12'>
<div class='panel panel-default'>
<div class='panel-heading'>{{ gT("Footer") }}</div>
<div class='panel-body'>
<div class='form-group row'>
<label for='simple_edit_options_footer' class='control-label'>{{ gT("Footer text/copyright (HTML links supported)") }}</label>
<div class="input-group">
<textarea rows="5" cols="200" data-inheritvalue="{{oParentOptions.footer | escape}}" name="footer" class="selector_option_value_field selector__color-picker form-control simple_edit_options_footer" data-id="footer"></textarea>

<footer>© Company name</footer>

In option.twig : yes, but not by config.xml only.

I mean : i already have a options.twig :
But if i want to remove it : need toi update core.

Update the description : options.xml

You are right, at config.xml this is missing. I have adjusted the ticket title since it was mentioning options.xml.

@gabrieljenik, I hope you don't mind if we assign this one to you as well since this is also affecting setting theme options at config.xml so this is similar to your tickets

@DenisChenu, we already have a solution for text inputs at Would you be able to extend this for textareas as well? I think we really need this feature for LS 6.x templates.

@ollehar: This issue is confirmed, but what are the next steps for fixing it? We already have a solution for text inputs at Can we add support for textareas in a similar way?
