It seems that after some articles are created I cannot change the field type.
But I have already created several articles where I have data on a single line text (textbox) which is limited to 100 characters. We've now find that we need to expand that field so it can store longer pieces of text, but I'm unable to do so. What's the best way to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Paulo,

It's not possible to change the field type since it would corrupt the data in the database.

In your case since the type of data stored is similar you could change it via the database and change the field type for that field there. It's a number (corresponding to the different types) but I don't know it out of mu head. Otherwise a quick copy paste for teh fields might be easier.

Please read the F2C documentation before asking questions! Thank you if you've done so ;)
