TOPIC: Text length from add

Text length from add 1 year 7 months ago #7322

Hello there,
On our website we are using the JomClassifieds ads manager. The webmaster wants to be able to put in adds (more or less job offers) with a lot of text in it. Right now it seems there is a limit to the text length in the adds. How or where can I change this so there can be more text in the adds?
Thanks!

Dear Customer,

Kindly open your Joomla admin and click Components ---> Jomclassifieds ---> Global Configuration ---> Site Display Settings.

Here under Grid View (or) List View, please set value '0' for the 'Description chars limit' field and save it and check. If still you have any issues, please send your site details to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . So that we wil check and update you.

Thanks.

Hello ..,
Thanks! This works fine. :)
Is it also possible to put in html? Because now al text is in one long line without brakes or paragraphs.
Thanks!

You can add third party editors in your Joomla admin which will allow you to add html. Please check below documentation,

Hello ,
Thanks for the reply!
I'm aware of the content editors in Joomla :)
But when I use this in the Adsmanager and publish the add, the text is one long line without the breaks and paragraph tags I've put in.
You can see this on this page
How can I get this right?
Thanks!
