Description of problem:
When using content > Categories > Edit Category to alter a mistyped
Name, it is impossible to add a character until several characters
have been deleted.
This occurs when the existing category name is quite long. It seems
there is a maximum character value for this field, but when the Local
Government Directories List categories were imported they overrode
In this example
Local Government Categories List > Social services > Childre, young
people and families
.... I needed to add an "n" to the word children. I couldn't. I
deleted a character, but still could add one. In fact, in order to
add a character I must delete 5.
This seems to be the case in all of a slection of 'long' Category
names I tried, and also applies to the URL field.
It effectively means these category names cannot be edited in the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
The CMS UI is imposing an arbitrary limit on the data field which is
much less than what the database is actually capable of storing.
Out of curiousity, what's the formula for translating the maximum
capacity of the underlying DB column into the correct "max" attribute on
the HTML text field?
Category editing UI was arbitrarily limiting category name input to 30
