Expand some 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

Version 2.3.7 is pretty old. If you are already considering upgrading, the upgrade might be the first step here.

Current releases allow for these arbitrary field sizes to be changed far more easily. We’ve been removing some arbitrary limits as we run across them:

Submission title and Issue title are also on our immediate radar.
