Default Synopsis problem

I've got a problem with the length of the synopsis. In fact, when you don't write a specific synopsys the limit entered in admincp works : it grabs the correct number of letters from the topic. But if you want to add a personnal synopsis (not the automatic one), the number of letters is fixed to 245.

I can't confirm this one. I have set mine to 800 and it is working pretty good.

You sure you have the latest version? I know this was an issue with a previous release?

Thanks!

Yes i'm sure ; i've just tested again with uploading php files and importing product ; same result. Can be seen here : http://www.lesatirique.info/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=45

There is a last method i'd like to avoid : delete the product, then reinstall it. But i will lose all my settings

k. I THINK Ive got it.

Try changing your GARS Froumdisplay Query hook content to:

PHP Code:
if(is_object($vbulletin->gars))
{
 
$hook_query_fields.=", ga.header_image, ga.byline, ga.feature_untill, ga.pagecount, ga.custom2";
 
$hook_query_joins .= " LEFT JOIN " TABLE_PREFIX "gars as ga ON(ga.threadid = thread.threadid) ";
    
//if (!$previewfield)
    //{
  
$previewfield "IF(ga.synopsis, ga.synopsis,post.pagetext) AS preview,";
  
$previewjoin "LEFT JOIN " TABLE_PREFIX "post AS post ON(post.postid = thread.firstpostid)";
    
//}
