About Expand fields

Hi, I have a multi journal installtion usin ojs 2.3.7 and some users request me to expand some fields:

  • section title
  • article subjects

I review database and this information is stored on a string type so the limit problem is on text inputs on forms. Can I extend this size without problems? Will be any problem qhen I upgrade ojs version?

Thanks in advance

Hi @StevenTumlin,

I would strongly suggest upgrading to the latest OJS – many fields have changed from fixed-length VARCHARs to TEXT fields, which will likely already solve your problem.
