Project URL overflows on summary

I'd like to use the Project URL to link to our SharePoint site where we keep all the project documents. However, those links are long, and you'll see they overflow into the other fields. I tried anchoring the links similar to the below, but the project URL field must start with 'http'. does anyone have a solution for this?

<a href="some long link">SharePoint Repository</a>

I chose to go with using a link in the description field since it allows HTML.

You could perhaps just change the link text with JavaScript after the fact. Paste this into the Announcement Banner in JIRA Admin:


AJS.toInit(function () {
  AJS.$('#pd-url a').text('Sharepoint Repository');

This will mean that All URLs have the same text, but that might be OK for you. I don't know.

each project link will be a different URL to a different place in the repository so that's almost a solution.
