Dear OJS Developers,
We are running into form and database field size problems. Since the system is meant to be international, but it does not create separate databases for each language, we must input all the language content in one field (i.e: title, abstract, author bio, as well as all the journal's about content!).
Unfortunately, there are HTML form field size limitations, as well as database size limitations, which truncates content. Some of the section's titles get truncated too, as well as telephone fields which do not accept cell phone number sizes.
Also, in Brazil a phone number may contain at least 8 digits, plus 2 digit area code, plus international code, and if you want to add your cell phone there is no field for it, so it is typed in the same field.
I would recommend changing all database fields to either 255 chars, or better all to TEXT, as well as remove all size limitations in form fields.
This would solve many content limitatons.
Another solution is to create and "Add language button", so each field could have a translation, and add a cell phone field in user registration. I believe I'm part of "the less than 1%" of the population in Brazil who does NOT own a cell phone.
