YOP Poll

    Hello,

    Is there a way to increase the number of characters allowed in a question? I have some poll questions that are getting cut off after around 255 characters.

    Thanks.

    Hey drewsisk,

    That option will be available at the next release.

    Until then, if you are familiar with phpmyadmin, to make changes in the database, we can give more instructions on how to do that.

    Please let us know.

    Best regards,

    YOP Team

    Hi,

    Open phpmyadmin and look for the database where you have your wordpress installed.

    Then search for "wp_yop_polls" table and go to Structure for that table. You will see a list with all the fields in the table. Among them is the "question" field.

    Click on Change and in "Type" choose TEXT instead of VARCHAR. This should do it.

    If you have any other questions, let us know.

    Regards,

    YOP Team
