Too long name bug

edited September 2009 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I am new in Vanilla communty and I want to say I am really excited.

I found a little bug today in version 2. If I want to make a category with too long name I get an error. Look at Vanilla printscreen.

I make an experiment. I create an short name category. Than I have tried to expand a name and I got little notification "Name is 5 characters too long." and everything was OK.

    Looks like the Name field in the Categories table is limited to 30 characters (why though? seems an odd thing to limit on the database side) and they missed a check.

    I think it is easy to limit with html or javascript and it's not any problems with php or database...

    That is a problem. Did anyone submit this to GitHub? I don't remember seeing it there.
