we have found a problem in our instance of OJS (2.3.6) in our institution.
The field setting_value of the table journal_settings is of text type, text type allow text up to 64kbytes of size.
This value may not be enougth for certains settings, like about, so we have changed the type from text to mediumtext, that allows text up to 16Mbytes.
Did you have this problem?
In later versions (>2.3.6), this field have been changed?
Can cause this change of the type inconsistences or problems in the database of OJS?
Thank you from now.

New releases of OJS still use the "text" type. We're using ADODB for database abstraction, and unfortunately it doesn't allow as much flexibility in data types as MySQL does (since it needs to abstract support for several DBMSs, not just MySQL). However, your modification should work without problems. Beware that if/when you run an upgrade, the database descriptor will by synced against the database, which may mean that the data type is reverted and the data is chopped down to fit.
