I'm finding that Cyrillic text entered into a Wygwam field is truncated. Is this because there is a limit for character rendered in unicode?

  • Possibly. Also it might have to do with the encoding your channel_entries table is set for. In UTF-8, Cyrillic glyphs usually take 2 bytes of storage space, but US English glyphs only take 1 byte.

It seems that there is a limit to the size of the table in the database. In my case the easiest solution was to add an extra text field.
