  • Limit the number of characters in Location?


    I'm trying to limit the number of characters in the Location field. I have the 'Max length of allowed user input' set at 20 but it has not altered the number of characters for existing members.

    Is there anything else I need to do to rectify this or does this only take affect when a new member registers?

    I was experimenting with this the other day. It seems it will take affect next time your members adjust their profile.

      Changing this is not retroactive. There may be a query to strip the extra characters from existing fields but unfortunately I don't know what that is. Maybe someone else will have an idea.

        Thank you both

        Perhaps someone else could advise me on how to adjust this instead of waiting for the members to edit their profile?
