Why are the string fields are cut-off after 255 characters?

Apr 3, 2012 12:27 AM

The string fields can only contain as much as 255 characters, if an user fills in a form or submits a web app item and puts more than 255 characters in such a field the characters after the 255-th are lost and will not be saved inside the database.

    You say "the string fields," but are you just referring to web apps? What other fields in other modules are limited?

    Hi Mario

     

    Is there a way to set character limit in the module tag used in the webapp layout i.e. {tag_mytext,100}

     

    Thanks

    Wayne
