Description Alan McCann 2004-02-16 11:06:39 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

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 
orthodox way.

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.
Comment 2 Vadim Nasardinov 2004-02-16 11:23:01 EST
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?

fixed @40451. 
Category editing UI was arbitrarily limiting category name input to 30
