Increasing the length of the NodeAlias

   —   
This article gives you instructions on how to increase the length of the NodeAlias property:
Let’s say you need to increase the NodeAlias length from 50 characters to 100. In this case please follow the steps below:

1) Edit the ~\CMSModules\Content\CMSDesk\Properties\Alias_List.aspx file and increase the MaxLength value of the txtAlias field (for example to 100):
<cms:CMSTextBox ID="txtAlias" runat="server" CssClass="TextBoxField" MaxLength="100" />

2) Add following key to your web.config file:
<add key="CMSMaxNodeAliasLength" value="100" />

3) Remove following Views from your database:
View_CMS_Tree_Joined_Linked
View_CMS_Tree_Joined_Regular

4) Increase the nvarchar size from 50 to 100 of the NodeAlias column in the CMS_Tree table

5) Increase the nvarchar size from 50 to 100 of the NodeAlias column in following procedures:
Proc_CMS_Tree_MoveNodeAlphabetical
Proc_CMS_Tree_InitNodeOrders
Proc_CMS_Tree_OrderAlphaAsc
Proc_CMS_Tree_OrderAlphaDesc

6) Run two attached sql (View_CMS_Tree_Joined_Linked, View_CMS_Tree_Joined_Regular) scripts to regenerate deleted views
