Length of text

Post by Fabien » Mon Apr 15, 2019 6:24 am


Not really a bug but this morning, I had a very bad surprise. Yesterday, I wrote a long entry, saved it and go to sleep very happy! This morning, I opened the entry to correct it and add some new ideas and… a part of my work of yesterday had disappeared.

I know that the problem is the MySql text field that has a size limited to 64KB. This is small, specially with UTF8.

Is it possible to have S9Y use MEDIUMTEXT for the body and extended fields of table "entries" in a next version? Or is it possible to have S9Y sending an alert when the text exceed the autorised size?
Is there a solution usable now, other than splitting my text in several entries?

Thanks. Have a nice day.
