    Hi
    Not sure if this is the right place to post this.
    I have created a couple of custom text area fields. I have made them 60 x 20 to allow the user to enter a fair amount of detail.
    When I set up a user and they fill out the text area they can put quite a lot of lines of text in the field.
    When I save the changes, go out and come back to edit the information, I find that some of the text is missing.
    Is there a limit on how much information can be kept in a text area? If so, how much?

    Thanks

    This depends on field types that you set in amember CP -> Add field for these fields.
    make sure that fields are SQL and SQL type is TEXT.
