Hello,
I installed simple calendar on the site luimo.etacomcms.it/it/i-corsi/agenda.html
In the tab "information" in the description, I can not paste a long text: is cut after about 200 characters.
In your online demo I had no problems.
Can you help me?
thanks
Best regards
Emilio

We all have had this problem :(

Go to phpmyadmin
search the '_simplecalendar' table field 'description'
change type to = 'mediumtext' to reflect the change and now can add event descriptions as long as you want :)

BEST way to fix it for the current (3.0.10) version of SimpleCalendar is:

1) Install AceSQL component (it's freeware) http://www.joomace.net/downloads/acesql
2) Determine your Joomla table prefix (usually a 5-char something, followed by underscore "_")
3) In the AceSQL Query dialog, write
ALTER TABLE <prefix>_simplecalendar MODIFY COLUMN description MEDIUMTEXT
4) UNINSTALL AceSQL (unless you need it for other stuff).

It will of course be fixed in the upcoming version of SimpleCalendar, which I'm working on right now.
