Maximum Characters not working on certain mobile devices

  1. peacewithgod

    I have set a limit of 200 characters for a comment field but I am still receiving comments with more than 200 characters from mobile devices.

    I know they are coming from a mobile device because they are coming from my mobile specific forms. How ever I have no way of knowing which type of mobile device they are on.

    How can I fix this issue??

  2. The character limit comes from a JavaScript. It's possible their device does not support JavaScript. If that's the case, you can work around it by validating the data after it's submitted, rather than relying on a client side script to enforce the limit. You can use the gform_validation filter to check the length of the comment submitted, and return an error if the length is over 200.
