Kyara - Database character manipulations and more

Kyara enables longer maximum characters in entry titles and other fields, easy conversion of tables to another collation/encoding, and simple database backup using CodeIgniter’s database backup tools.

* Kyara comes from Japanese which is a shortened word for “character”.


Enable longer maximum characters in entry fields and more!

Need more than 100 characters for that entry title? Enable longer maximum characters in a number of control panel fields, such as entry title and custom field labels. Simple descriptions of each modifiable field are also included.



Change database tables to different collation/character sets

Easily set tables to Unicode (UTF-8) if they aren’t set already, or other encodings if you have special character set needs.



Simple but handy database backup

Kyara includes a simple database backup utility based on CodeIgniter’s database backup library. EE Date format variables are also available.
