    Thanks, Boxy!

    Out of curiosity, are changes to a site description supposed to show up immediately? Because I edited my site's description, but nothing changed on the Links page.

    If that's really what happened, than it really should change back. 100 characters is just not adequate for anything other than the most terse of descriptions.

    Well, my feeling is simple - many other sites are being allowed a Site Description field that is much larger than what I can currently obtain. I think it's only fair that I be able to have the same length, don't you agree?

    Not deliberate, I hope! 100 characters is too few.

    Shall I just keep trying every so often, or will a post be made when the problem is fixed?

    I am still right, it is set to 250, but I think the table field is limited to 100. So you are right too. I will point this out to the site developer and we will look into it. The fields should be consistent.

    Although, if the field length is limited to 100, how can other sites descriptions be longer? They should have been truncated too, I would think...

    Hi there, I just checked but the input field has maxlength="250" for the site description. Make sure you don't confuse site title with site description!

    No, I was correct the first time - this problem is most definitely occuring in the Site Description field.

    Minor issue with the vBulletin Site Description field

    In the Member's Area, the Site Description field lets me type more than 100 characters. But once I hit the Submit button, it truncates my entry to 100 characters.

    Other sites have much longer Site Descriptions, however, so it's obvious that I should be able to type more - but it keeps getting truncated every time.


    Can anyone give me a hand with this?
