Thread: Longer Product Name

  1. #1

    Default Longer Product Name

    How do I increase the allowable number of characters in the product name? My names seem to be limited to about 64 characters; I'd like to name some things with up to 128 characters. I can't find a configuation limit on product name length, only manufacturers name length.

    jhixson, you will need to alter the database field length directly. There is no admin switch to do this.

    In the products_description table, change the 'product_name' field from 64 to 128 characters.

    Michael, I'm am so sorry to ask, but what is "the database field length?" Where do I find the "products_description table." Thank you.

    you need to use a tool such as phpmyadmin, or use the mysql command line client. if your web hosting company uses cpanel, u should have the option in there. u need to enter your database and find the "products_description" table. the products_name field is set to varchar of length 64. you just need to change/edit the length attribute to be 128. again, using phpmyadmin to do this makes it extremly easy.
