I'd like to know if a way exists to make PHPMyAdmin show entire fields in the table browsing tab. Right now I have a TEXT field and I can never read the entries in their entirety.

How can I do that?

Once you have the query results on the page there are a couple of options. In the left-most header column you should see a link something like <-- T --> If you mouse over that you will see that it toggles "full texts".

You can also click on "Print View (with full texts)" at the bottom of the results when you are viewing the partial texts. This option disappears (and is actually the default for Print View) once you have clicked the link mentioned above.
