Description Clinton Graham 2014-05-15 07:35:29 PDT
In Setup step 1, the Search Keywords and Search Description fields are limited to 255 characters in the UI only.  No restriction exists in the DB.

The arbitrary restriction should be removed, or should be described to the user in the instructions as to why shorter meta tags are widely considered best practice.

Best case: add in the instructions to encourage best practices and remove the arbitrary limit.

Suggestions regarding language for the instructions is welcome.
