    Any way, when using the builder, to limit the length of content in a textarea?

    Yes, you can. You need to install the plugin Text Limiter first, then follow this guide to add rules to the field using custom attribute:

    Ahn,

    I’ve set the limit to 1500, the admin area is allowing 1500 but the front end is only displaying 1491.

    Hi, the plugin doesn’t restrict on the content length displayed in the front end. It might be your PHP function that gets the content and displays it. Please check this.

    I’m just using https://www.cincinnatidesignawards.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=esb-cie-import-export-page to return the content. Nothing custom or fancy.

    I can’t access that page. It’s your internal admin page. So, the problem is how that page exports/imports content. I think it doesn’t relates to Meta Box. Please try deactivate the text limiter extension and try again.

    I removed the limit (screen shot of metabox before removal) https://www.dropbox.com/s/4ywihsueg8nw74l/Screenshot%202016-10-30%2015.43.45.png?dl=0) from the textarea metabox and refreshed the post (did not reserve the post itself) and now all 1500 characters are being displayed (before is was omitting the last 5-60 characters).

    Somehow limit is effecting the output of echo rwmb_meta( ‘entry_narative’);

    For now, removing the limit is fine on this project as we are past the point of accepting submissions. Just hate to see it affect anyone else.

    Thanks, always appreciate the fast replies and constant improvement in the plugins.
