HTML Banners - FIXED IN V3.2

Post by RWAP » Thu Feb 07, 2013 10:46 am

If you enter a complex HTML advertising banner, you will find that this can corrupt the layout of the site and in fact you may not even be able to edit or remove the banner afterwards except by editing the database directly.

:!:

The issue is in the eA_banners table in the SQL database.

The field type for bannerHTML is set to TINYTEXT, which means it can only store a maximum of 255 characters - any excess HTML is just chopped off.

I have changed this to field type TEXT and reported this to Enuuk to incorporate in their next release.

No idea about banners, but I had a similar problem when entering custom pages. Sometimes the backend would not allow me to edit the custom page anymore, and the only way out was to edit the database directly.

Need to investigate more when this occurred. Perhaps when I had some incorrect html in the custom page!?

Yes it could be incorrect HTML - odd - never come across this one - the field is a text field which allows for 2^31-1 characters so it shouldn't be truncating the text.
