Entry of ZIP/Postcode in Event Submissions

Postcodes in the UK can have up to eight characters. The ZIP field on event submission only allows five characters. See specification at http://www.govtalk.gov.uk/gdsc/html/frames/Postcode.htm
Could the field in event submission be made more generally applicable throughout the world by making it bigger? Big Grin
Can I hack my system to allow postcodes to be entered?

Modify this line of the plugins/calendar/templates/admin/eventeditor.thtml file replacing the 5s with 8s:
Text Formatted Code
    <td><input type="text" name="zipcode" size="5" maxlength="5" value="{event_zipcode}"></td>


Also, you'll have to modify your database. Run this SQL:
Text Formatted Code
Alter table gl_events modify column zipcode varchar(8);
