    Default html text area in admin is too small

    Hi,
    Is there a way to increase the number of characters I can input into the html text area on the banner section in admin?
    Thanks

    The field banners_html_text is a TEXT field and only can hold 65,000 bytes ...

    umm ... er ... what are you putting in that banner that needs to be so huge?

    You can always customize the banners table of your database for larger field type ...

    Default Re: html text area in admin is too small

    Hi,
    The weight of the info isn't the issue I feel, The text I am putting into the text field is ony 230kb but consists of 1348 lines of text. It's the number of lines that is the issue, When I cut and paste this text into the box and save it, I then view it on the site and though I haven't count them I can see that not all 1348 lines are there.

    Does that make sense.

    could you not put all the text in a seportate file like banner1.php and then use php include in the banner to bring in the file???

    i not used banners my self but im sure thats worth a try.

    That sounds like it would work but I really don't know how to write PHP, I have limited understanding and can alter existing code but not create the code myself. To be honest, I would have thought that the number of lines shouldn't make any difference.
    Thanks

    This is probably a silly question - Why are you using the banner system to include a 1300+ line text page?
    Please do not PM for support issues: a private solution doesn't benefit the community.

    Be careful with unsolicited advice via email or PM - Make sure the person you are talking to is a reliable source.

    This was the easiest way (I know of) to include a narrow text box at the foot of every page. Most of the info I needed to be showed is showing, so I will most likely make do with what I have. If I stumble across a way of fixing it then I'll do so at a later date.
    Thanks

    you want it in the foot of everypage?? do you want it to change randomly??

    if not just add a ne div and the text into the footer file above or below the copywrite and style the div in you templeplates style sheet.

    copy the tpl_footer file from the template_default/common folder you yourtemple/common

    then add the information above or below the copywrite which is on line 61.

    all the sections are commented in there just add you text in a div and style it in your style sheet.

    Code:
    <!--bof-text display -->
    <div id="foottext">
    insert you text here etc etc etc
    </div>
    <!--eof-text display -->

    or to use an include file

    Code:
    	<?php include("url to the txt or html or php file"); ?>
