[SOLVED] Problems after changint field-type form "text" to "textarea"

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

hey,

i am confused. i changed in phpmyadmin the field-type of a field from "text" to "textarea".

 

But when i now enter a text in the field, it saves only the first 200 characters.

But in maxlength i changed the value to "0" and i find in the field settings nothing what limited the text area to 200 characters.

 

must i do another changing that i have not the limitation?

 

best regards

You went around the user interface to change directly the database, so that can always lead to unexpected results, and what you are seeing is precisely a result of that. Each field has a column datatype in #__jreviews_content so you must change it there from VARCHAR to TEXT.
