Message Board Text lenght

Nipuna Weerasinghe asked on March 11, 2014 18:32

Hi, I m using Kentico Message board to collect some information from our website and board allow user to enter more than 300 characters. But once I log as an admin and try to collect all the comments from the message board dash board list shows only a limited number of characters under the text column, once I hovering over it will show me the whole comment that is exceeds the 300 characters. But once I export the list to excel it export what I can see on the list not the whole comment

Please see the image here

You can simply edit the \CMSModules\MessageBoards\Controls\Messages\MessageList.ascx.cs file where you can find in the gridElem_OnExternalDataBound method the messagetext gets cut to 30 characters.

Best regards,
