Hi there, I have a gift wrap option and I want to set a character limit to this field - please let me know what and where to copy/paste/edit this code to get that result. Thanks so much!

You are going to want to include a "maxlength" attribute on the textarea element. That allows you to set the maximum number of characters the customer can enter.

I am unsure what theme you are using or how many lines of code your files are so I cannot tell anything more specific than that at this time.

Hope that helps!

Hi there! 

 

I tried that after finding this similar post: https://community.shopify.com/c/shopify-design/limit-the-number-of-characters-in-my-gift-message-box...

 

But it didn't work when I previewed it:

Update: Looks like I had to delete my text and type it in again - it does indeed stop after 50 characters. Thanks for your help!
