Hello,

I installed Advanced Guest Book. All seems fine, but I get an error after adding an entry. I got:

1406 Data too long for column 'browser' at row 1

I filled in every field, pressed Submit and got this error.

What is wrong?

Thanks for your help.

The browsers useragent field was only given 100 characters and unfortunately some (Internet Explorer) now uses more.

Hi,

Sorry to dig this thread up but I am getting the same problem.

I have been using the advanced guestbook for years with no problems. I have just moved it to a new hosting server and I am now getting this error 1406 issue.

I have tried reinstalling the latest version, but it made no difference.

This is the link to the guestbook:

http://www.willowdene.greenwich.sch.uk/gbookphp/

Is there any resolution?

Thanks

Paul

Do you have phpMyAdmin (usually in cPanel) and if so do you know how to use it?

I do have phpmyadmin. If used it a couple of times before to reset the admin password.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Once in phpMyAdmin find the book_data table. Change the browser field so that it is 200 instead of the 100 it currently is.

Wonder how much crap you have to install to make the useragent go over 100 characters though
