View Full Version : saving text to mysql

I need some advice.
I have a textarea on a form and it's limited to 1000 characters.
I had thought that it would not be a good idea to save the text to
a table in the database because it would slow things down. I guessed that
what might happen is that the text would be saved to a file and that the root to the file would be saved as an entry in the database. Now I'm not sure because maybe a 1000 characters is peanuts within mysql.
I'd be grateful for a bit of feedback on this.
Thanks - Songboy

whats the reason for limiting to a 1000 characters?
if you are importing the text anyway i doubt any difference in speed will be noticable.
