How to handle of too short Title in Drupal

By BXTra |

It took me a while to look for what I can do to handle longer title. Here is what I did to solve the problem :

Using PHPMyAdmin, in the database under tables"Node" and "Node_revisions", you will find field "Title" with varchar set for 128. Just increase that size. Or you can change datatype to "Text".

This shouldn't be the problem for English only website but this could be a problem for any website running in other languages.

As a super drupal expert you certainly can answer this question: what impact has changing a mysql field to Text on site searchability, database index, general speed and optimization? Uhmmm?
