Extend number of characters in "Track Title" field

Postby claucole » Thu Dec 12, 2013 1:38 am


I am running OCS and I need to insert track titles for an upcoming conference. Some Tracks have a long title and the field cannot include it all. Is there a way to extend the number of characters of the field?

Thank you,

Hi Claudio,

Edit templates/manager/tracks/trackForm.tpl and find the markup that displays the title field:

Code: Select all

<tr valign="top">
        <td width="20%" class="label">{fieldLabel name="title" required="true" key="track.title"}</td>
        <td width="80%" class="value"><input type="text" name="title[{$formLocale|escape}]" value="{$title[$formLocale]|escape}" id="title" size="40" maxlength="120" class="textField" /></td>
Extend the maxlength="120" to whatever you like.
