Default maxlenght in product description

Hello,
I want to limit the signs provider can use in the short product description with an active html editor

x-cart Platinum 4.7.9

<tr>
{if $geid ne ''}<td width="15" class="TableSubHead"><input type="checkbox" value="Y" name="fields[descr]" /></td>{/if}
<td colspan="2" class="FormButton">
<div{if $active_modules.HTML_Editor and not $html_editor_disabled} class="description"{/if}>{$lng.lbl_short_description}* :</div>
<div class="description-data">
{include file="main/textarea.tpl" name="descr" maxlenght=600 cols=45 rows=8 data=$product.descr width="100%" btn_rows=4}
{if $top_message.fillerror ne "" and ($product.descr eq "" or $product.xss_descr eq "Y")}<font class="Star">&lt;&lt;</font>{/if}
</div>
</td>
</tr>

tryed it with maxlength but it does not work here,
any Idea?

Default Re: maxlenght in product description

For the plain textareas (not HTML editors), in skin/common_files/main/textarea.tpl you'll need to add...
Code:
{if $maxlength && $usertype eq "P"} maxlength="{$maxlength}"{/if}
... to the <textarea>'s

Then you should be able to use your code.

I don't know if it'll work in the HTML editors, you may have to find a maxlength plugin or script for your chosen editor.

Alternatively, you can just truncate the product descriptions...
Code:
{$product.descr|truncate:600:"...":true}
Or you could use something like this.
