Long Description text size

Post by SeedGrower » Oct 28, 2009 3:32 pm

Frank,

Thank you again for all of the help last Friday.

I was looking at the documentation for the long description field for an item. It states:

long_desc
Long text description of the item. This field can be up to 1k in length and can contain HTML. A shortened
version of this text appears in the search results when using a single column.

I pasted about 30,000 into a field to test it, and about 8300 characters managed to go into the text box before being truncated.

Will I get into trouble if I have the long description text longer than 1024 characters.

Thanks,

SeedGrower

No, but if there are any unclosed HTML tags because of it, your search.htm page may show strange results.
