Splitting Collection Description In Short And Long Description

I would like to have a short description at the top of my collection page and het long description at the bottom of my collection page.  I have read somewhere that this code should be added at the collection-template.liquid:

{% comment %}ly_global_begin{% endcomment %}{% include 'ly-global' %}{% comment %}ly_global_end{% endcomment %}
{% assign descriptions = collection.description | split: "<!-- split -->" %}
{% assign short_desc = descriptions[0] %}
{% assign long_desc = descriptions[1] %}

 However I do not know where to place this code. I am afraid if I place it in the wrong section I will lose my current descriptions.

 

Here below this is my collection-template.liquid html-code:

 

{%- if section.settings.show_layout_switch -%}
{%- assign desktop_items_per_row = cart.attributes.collection_desktop_items_per_row | default: section.settings.grid_desktop_items_per_row | times: 1 -%}
{%- assign mobile_items_per_row = cart.attributes.collection_mobile_items_per_row | default: section.settings.grid_mobile_items_per_row | times: 1 -%}

{%- if desktop_items_per_row >= 3 and desktop_items_per_row != section.settings.grid_desktop_items_per_row -%}
{%- assign desktop_items_per_row = section.settings.grid_desktop_items_per_row -%}

In order to provide more predictable results (for instance not showing filters by tag even if the option is checked in settings,
but that there are no tags for the given collection to show), we are doing some more logic here. Basically, we try to check if there
are tags to show by stripping internal tags (those that start by "__")

Implementation note: the filters can be displayed in two different ways: in a sidebar menu, always visible, or in a drawer. Due to that, we are
setting the general code here, and then we will output it twice.

Or do I have to do something with this code in the description of the collection page to separate the html-code:

<p>short</p>
<!-- split -->
<p>long</p>

 

I posted this question yesterday but i got deleted somehow. It would be nice if you could answer before deleting the post.
