Default Re: Storing Text Area into MySQL Database...

If you want to limit text, you should use a char type field. This will allow you to limit the characters inputted to a maximum of 255 characters. Text fields in mysql are limited to 65kb. There are other larger type text fields in mysql as well. Of course you could also use php or javascript to check and keep the posted string at a certain size before adding them into the table.
