error saving a module 09 May 2019 18:11 #52448

When saving my front page module I get the error: Save failed with the following error: The content exceeds allowed limits
I have not added any content, just redid existing content. What are the limits?

Hi
the limits are given by the SQL field. You must go in your database >> modules table >> params field >> change it from "text" type to "longtext", so that you will have many more space :)

this is on your server .. you must go in the PHPmyAdmin interface
If you don't want to play with your Database, you can also use a tag in a custom html module, and edit the tag as a page in the popup using the editor button
(then not using a Page Builder module directlly to avoid the limit overflow)

In PHP My Admin, I have SEE #1, under structure tab there is, SEE #2
If I want to edit the page builder ck module SEE #3, how would I do that?
in the advanced tab tag shows module as a div, no option for page.
Like I said I am a newbie, self taught and took classes on lynda.com, I need step by step if you have the time.

as a newbie I would suggest you to not update your database and use the other method :)

1/ go in your modules manager >> new module >> Custom html type
2/ open this module which has only an editor. In the editor you will get a button called "Page Builder CK"
3/ use this button to create or add an existing page in your module, this will write {pagebuilderck XX} as text, but you can use the editor button to directly update the page builder content in the popup from the module

This way, you have a module with a small text {pagebuilderck XX}, which loads a page (saved in the page builder ck sql table, which is longtext)
