Thanks, Perry, I did try updating on a staging site and it completely stopped showing the majority of all pins by specific categories.More info in the ticket I just submitted. We do have hourly backups in case something goes wrong too, and note that we have active updates being made to the database by users.elijMember
Another follow up to this–when we go over the 500 character limit with over 130 or so categories, there is a timeout when saving… https://www.dropbox.com/s/5pcgnquy5czlxyk/Screenshot%202020-04-15%2005.12.13.png?dl=0
We’ve had two full years of issues with this plugin about this with no resolution.elijMember
Hi Perry, thanks for the explanation, but what you’re describing I’ve just tested and found it to not be true. I’ve created a test map pin and selected every single category. Then, I clicked edit and noticed only 146 categories were still selected of the 331 categories. This is exactly in line with the varchar 500 limitation and goes against what you just mentioned that the legacy category is not in use–it clearly is on at least the admin side. Can you confirm a fix for this?elijMember
Thanks for noting that Perry and the legacy field as you describe seems to still be in use with us as we’ve avoided updating to the latest Pro version (we are on 7.10.61) but it seems upon upgrading the regular plugin (not pro) it resets to varchar 500.
So why is the legacy codebase still affecting our admin experience? How can we fix this without losing our data?elijMember
Hi, Perry, I’m not talking about the actual text, but rather I’m referencing the actual database structure, which captures the foreign keys (the ID number) of the WP maps category.
Right now it is limited to Varchar 500. We keep having to double or triple it using PHPMyAdmin within wp_wpgmza > category.
