I have made myself a php MYSQL shout box, the single line box where you enter your name i have made maxlength='20'. However the box where you enter the message, i cannot maxlength it. Is there something i can do apart from limit the number of characters entered into the MYSQL table which i have already done, but it means the user can use up 1000 characters but it will only store 100. This site http://www.killsometime.com/ (http://www.killsometime.com/) has a shoutbox(On the right hand side at the bottom) which doesn't let you enter over 50 characters and it tells you how many you've used... Does anyone know how they did it? http://www.htmlcodetutorial.com/help/images/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif
Many thanks
