Hi there, is there any way to increase the amount of text that can be added to the info fields for file upload fields?

Many thanks

Hi theclicklab, 

First, make a backup of your CMS database under the backup and restore menu before making any changes.

Then, the uploads table is hidden in the "Section Editors" list but you can edit it by typing in the table name directly like this: 

Modify info1, info2, etc and at the bottom under "Advanced Options" set "MySQL Column Type" to MEDIUMTEXT

Let me know if that works for you.

Hi Dave, I did that but the actual field in the upload popup also has a maxlength on it as well. I also tried changing the field type to text box but this still shows as a text field.
