If the length of the entered text is more than maxlength, django says:

Ensure your text is less than 3000 characters

It would be nice for the user to know how many characters in the text. Please see the patch attached below:

Ensure your text is less than 3000 characters (it is 4221).

  • Status changed from new to closed

Good idea, but old forms are end-of-line and won't be taking enhancements. The patch for newforms (#4469) is good to go though!
