    When I try to edit any info on the “Bio” field of the account/register form builder, I get the error “Column change failed, you may have too many columns.” What’s particularly strange is that I can edit all of the other fields just fine. It is only the Bio field that shows this error. Thoughts?

    Hi,

    This happens when there is a limit on the database column by hosting providers. Can you try to remove that field and create it again? Make sure you keep the htmlvar name the same as it is currently. Please keep a backup of the site for safety.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    That is a default field so not able to remove but only make it inactive. If you can provide FTP details in private reply than I can try programmatically removing it.

    Hi,

    I have removed the “Bio” field from the form builder. Kindly check and let me know if any issues.
