This component does much of what my site requires and I plan to purchase a validation key.

I've installed the current version (Simple Calendar 3.0.4) on a copy of Joomla 3.1.1. However, when I create an event, the description text truncates somewhere around 99 characters.

I see that the component installer SQL table instructions generate the 'description' field as type= varchar(255). I also see a change to this table type to 'mediumtext' in version 3.0.2 update, but this change was not successful for me (or in several cases where I have tested it).

I have worked around it by manually altering the '_simplecalendar' table field 'description' to type = 'mediumtext' to reflect the change and now can add event descriptions successfully.

But I'm curious why this version update failed and if anyone else has encountered this problem?

Thanks.

Since 3.0.4 the update should now trigger the update SQL instructions. There was an instruction missing in the install script.
Try reinstalling 3.0.4 (over the existing 3.0.4, or uninstalling it first ---> warning: data will be lost!), and it should update correctly.
