Keyword field - the number of characters

Postby Ajakss » Sat Jul 20, 2013 1:49 am


is there a way to increase the number of characters in the keyword field? I have noticed that some keywords are displayed only in part.

I was just wondering about this too and figured it out.

You have to edit the maxlength (the default is 255, which probably isn't enough for everyone) for metaSubjectExamples.

Go to ...ojs-2.4.3\templates\manager\setup\step3.tpl

Do a search for metaSubjectExamples on the template page and then bump the maxlength up to 800 or whatever you need.

The arbitrary restriction on 255 characters should be removed in 2.4.5.
