Length of product_name - can I change it ?

Hi there,

 

the length of the product_name is currently limited to 64 characters.

When I access the DB with phpmyadmin, it shows me the field with varchar(64).

 

Can I simply edit this into for example varchar(128) to have more characters available ?

 

If yes, do I have problems with easy populate ?

 

Thanks in advance,

Regards

Andreas

Hi there! The length is defined in the database. Browse your mysql database using phpmyadmin or something until you find the product name row of the products (I think) table. If my browser wasn't struggling with phpmyadmin's frames, I'd be more specific. It's pretty intiuative, so I'm sure you'll figure it out.

I just changed the length of my products_model to 30 w phpMyAdmin but EP still thinks it's 12. Any suggestions?
There is a setting in the admin/easypopulate file for this.

Thanks, I had misunderstood the manual and thought the settings would become evident when I launched the file in my browser-I feared that I had incompletely installed it. I know better now.
