Is there any way that this can be fixed via the core? I’m thinking either a validation check or an automatic change to the db that increases the character limit on the options_name field.
The validation would go check the limit and compare it with the options_name it’s trying to save. If it fails, the user would get some kind of notice that doesn’t allow them to save this field or at least warns them that this field won’t work until they choose a shorter name. It just seems like a poor user experience to have it look like everything’s fine, when in reality, it won’t work at all.
Thanks again for a great plugin!!!
