Question Error setting category icon to long fontawesome names

More
10 months 6 days ago - 10 months 6 days ago #1 by webenhanced
Kunena version 6.1.3.2
Joomla 4.3.4

When setting the category icon in administration backend, for long fontawesome icon names, the save record fails:

Saving category with id 13 failed : Data too long for column 'icon' at row 1


I see that the icon field in the kunena_categories table is set to varchar(20). Is there a safe way to extend that size that will withstand software updates?

An example name is: "far fa-chalkboard-teacher" = 25 characters.

thanks, Graham

You have a point there, I think it's a bug.
I can't easily find a setting somewhere in kunena configuration
I have compared some here myself
and apparently with a new installation
Code:
icon = varchar(20)
but at site where i upgraded kunena
Code:
icon = varchar(60)
so you can just increase it with phpmyadmin and save
