    Is there a way to limit the entry of a custom field to a certain number of characters using a function in function.php i see in the additional fields you can only choose what type of field it is? For example they want to add a custom field for a short description that can be up to 250 characters and no more can it be done?

    Thanks for using our plugins. I can help out here.

    We do not have a feature to do as you describe.

    If you think that is something you would like as a feature I encourage you to visit our User Voice Page and either upvote an existing request or make a new request there.

    It could be possible with a customization, but as that involves the admin not sure how feasible it is. Create a Javascript function to check a field and limit the characters would be the best way to go. We are unfortunately, limited in supporting customizations, but I can try to answer a question or two about it.
