allow for more than 255 chars in the 'Description' field
that's simple enough. Thanks Troy Roberts. They should add your code into the program.
Ok scratch that solution, you CANT increase it to anything over large like 20000. The description field does not maintain line breaks. so if you increase it too much the actual description will not flow properly to a second page.
Ok here is what i did (use at your own risk, i have ZERO idea if it will break anything for you).
I modified the description field in the database in the item table to be a VARCHAR(20000)
i then modified the following files as follows:
Line 112: description: string(20000)
Line 70: $this->hasColumn('description', 'string', 20000, array(
Line 72: 'length' => 20000,
Line 34: 'description' => new sfValidatorString(array('max_length' => 20000, 'required' => false)),
It worked for me, it may or may not work for you
I agree, this is not a feature, this is a bug. How is a 255 char limit even feasable as a descriptor field for invoices. Even something as simple as a pc would require way more. This should be addressed ASAP, this is a complete non-starter for me to use this product.
This is not a Feature. This is an error that needs to be fixed.
I like to give detailed feedback of 'what I did' in the description, and I often need more than 255 chars. Thanks.
