Hello,

I’d like to know if I can set the field leght of the text area (using Expresso fieldtype).
I need to publish a very long text and when I submit the post I get the text truncated.

Thank you so much,
Monica

Expresso fields are stored in the mysql database as text fields which have a limit of 65535 characters. this is the max amount for any field type.

no problem, splitting the field is probably your best bet

I changed the mysql field type from TEXT to MEDIUMTEXT. Maybe this also can be a solution.

nice workaround, LONGTEXT would also work
