Description of problem: The Company Specific Messages on the login page can cover all login page and the user interface under settings-> general tab breaks.Thus, there should be character limit.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): sat 6.3 snap 6.0
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate to Administer -> settings
2. Click on general tab
3. Enter large Login page footer message
Login page and UI under settings-> general breaks.
There should be constraint to character limit so that login page UI and settings-> general tab page should not break.
I don't think there should be a limit. Instead, the settings should be able to resize the table accordingly to the content. In fact some of the requesters of the RFE https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=726570 ask for pretty large texts to be included.
Agree, to some degree, with comment #3. The proper way would be to assure table can gracefully handle a bunch of text.
There probably should be some sort of validation, however, that someone can't DDoS or otherwise make a login screen unusable due to malicious (or inadvertent) inclusion of excessive content.
