We'd like to have some more information added along with "correction" element type in story's body. Could we please have these options available for this element type in Ellipsis?

1. Support hyperlink

2. Store the date/time note is added so that we can show it along with the correction

    HI Angela,

    In addition to adding this to content element in  ANS, this needs to also be supportedd in the Ellipsis UI. which currently supports only a crrection type selectrion from piack list and a field for correction text.

    Here are some suggestons from our newsroom as how this would best address our requirements:

    1. Treat the correction text field in a manner similar to the blockquote field in the block quote content element.  When you select some text, a pop--up menu of formatting options appears.  It should also have a control for turning the text into a hyperlink, with field for specifying the full URL.  (We have also requested addition of this to the blockquote content element as well.
    2. The timestamp should be set by providing a date/time calendar picker like used for picking oth than it beiner dates in the Ellipsis UI.  This will give more flexiability and editorial control than having it automatically generated.
    3. The correction Element is missing a third correction type that we have requested:  "Editor's Note",  It might make sense for the picklist to be configurable via an Ellipsis setting.
