hello admin
i am having a problem i am adding items (checkboxes, radio buttons, and dropdown lists ) to the user profile and i get ths message:

Row size too large. The maximum row size for the used table type, not counting BLOBs, is 65535. This includes storage overhead, check the manual. You have to change some columns to TEXT or BLOBs

I have read this page:

i read it But the problem did not resolve

When I create a new field And save it , I will not find it in the database (table xfqcy_jsn_users).
The new field is not be saved in the database

So I can not change column length.

you need to decrease length of already existing fields, otherwise it can not create a new column.

keep in mind that fields like radio of select set a single value, so for example with options like
- music|Music
- movie|Movie
- art|Art
- design|Design
the maximum value can be "design" (max 6 chars).
So I can reduce the column from 255 to 6.

Nope, update does not change Table structure of user data.

Another suggestion is to convert column type from "VARCHAR(255)" to "TEXT". Note: "TEXT" type is not recommended for searchable fields because it could decrease search performance.
