Link characters counting towards maxlength in textarea field

Hello all,

When trying to impose maxlength property to textarea field I noticed that links, eg: (link: text: Example) are counting towards the character limit. I understand that the text “Example” should, however it is a bit inconducive that the length of the url link etc counts as well.

Has anyone else come across this issue? Any work arounds?

Thank you!

I understand this can be an issue. On the other hand, to make this work like you expect, Kirby would have to parse the text on the fly continuously, I guess, to make it work, which would be a big performance issue. I’m not aware of a workaround.

Thanks @texnixe yes I understand that would be a big issue. Thanks for getting back to the question :slight_smile:
