Description Conrad Irwin 2010-02-04 00:46:10 UTC
The user-options table's preference name field is currently a meagre varbinary(32) so preference names are silently truncated on save
Comment 1 Happy-melon 2010-02-08 19:21:13 UTC
Why is this a problem?
Comment 2 Conrad Irwin 2010-02-08 19:23:23 UTC
They are not truncated on load, so the user ticks the preference box, clicks save, and when the page reloads the box is not checked and the preference not enabled.

(It would be simple to hack a fix by truncating on load, but that runs the risk of someone creating two gadgets with the same prefix - small though it may be)
