I need to increase the size of the question option fields from 150 to 170 characters. I can increase the size of the option field in the database but where do I change it in php? Is there a way the php could read the size of the field from the database when it creates the form?

Hi Gregg,
You'd need to adjust all the option fileds in phpMyAdmin, for example:

ALTER TABLE `jos_bfquiz_plus` CHANGE `option1` `option1` varchar(170) NOT NULL;

Then you'd need to edit the question form, /administrator/components/com_bfquiz_plus/models/forms/question.xml, and adjust the maxlength on the option fields.

<field name="option1" type="text"
