Make Venue Element more dynamic

Currently, the venue element only shows horizontally on one line per venue if you put the Venue Element in a section of a Layout Container that is at least 50%. That is a HUGE waste of screen space on a website to require the Venue Element to be so big just so it shows up halfway decent. When it is placed in a 33% layout container section, it wraps it so there are 2 lines per venue, with the Venue Name on the first line and then the Status below it on the 2nd line, which then makes the element a lot longer than it needs to be. However, there are existing code flaws in this element when utilizing it that way which put extra lines between the Venue Name and Status for all but the last Venue, which can cause confusion for some users. 

If the Element was dynamic, instead of assigning a static number of characters to the Venue Name and Status fields when displaying them, then in 99% of the cases, it wouldn't need to wrap, even on a 33% layout container section. In most cases, the Venue Name is short enough that you could easily fit the Venue name and Status on one line if it was displayed dynamically.

As a bonus, I would also find it very useful if there were more formatting options available for the element itself, especially including adding a link to the Venue Name (where you could post a link to the Google Map for that specific venue).
