Currently when we search in the spells section, we can see the name and some basic details of spells, even if we don't own it, however viewing any further details shows the book it belongs to so you can purchase it.
However, this also includes the class restriction information, which is strange, as we can already filter unowned spells by class using the search.
I think it would make sense to show the class restrictions for an unowned spell, as it will make it easier to see at a glance whether an unowned spell is available for a class or sub-class you're interested in, and thus might be worth buying.
For example, someone that doesn't own the Tasha's Cauldron spells can confirm that Summon Celestial is available to Clerics by doing a search for it under Cleric spells only. But what other classes is it available to? To find out you have to click each class in turn to see which ones it also shows up for, and that doesn't give me sub-class information.
This makes it very tedious to find out, and actually makes it harder to decide if you want to purchase the spell.
I know that D&D Beyond has to keep the spell effects hidden, as that's key to what's being sold, but since filtering by class is already allowed it surely shouldn't matter if the classes/sub-classes a spell is available to are shown, especially as it might encourage someone to buy and item?
