Extending email template length

Hi,
I'm having trouble saving my email templates that are longer than ~65889 characters.

I'm guessing this is a database size limitation, if so, is it possible to increase the email template to a medium blob?

(I'd be happy to install a new installation of Limesurvey if this was possible to prevent any corruption to existing surveys.)


Reason for large email size: With the demand for nice looking html emails, comes large amounts of nested CSS which takes up an enormous amount of characters.

Thanks in advance for any help or advice!

Hi,
these templates are stored in table "[limeprefix]_surveys_languagesettings"
So, in a new installation, where you should also create a new database, change the default type of "text" to "mediumtext" or whatever.

And please share you findings.

I did it and at first sight everythings works fine.

But I do not know what will happen when updating. If this table will be affected and changed someday.

Best regards
Joffm

Recommend to open a bug report / feature request about this too.
Just changing the database structure might be a quick fix, but you might run into issues later.

Thanks JoffM and Jelo!


JoffM's solution seems to work for the time being, keeping in mind Jelo's comments.

So I changed all the email template columns to "mediumtext" in the table "[limeprefix]_surveys_languagesettings".

Everything seems stable enough:
- I'm able to send and receive my lengthy emails
- works fine with 'Placeholder fields' included
- no issues editing email templates

Curious if it's only MySql that's affected as PostgreSQL doesn't seem to have such a limitation for 'text' columns, that I can find anyway.
