    It might be about the title line being too long. Make a short title.

    Over 20 characters in a thread title has been known to cause errors. You can upload a maximum of 6 images in a single post, and (and I could be wrong here), I think you get 5000 characters per post.


    Good luck reaching the web master....you're best berry is here, with us. :)

    There's an obvious contradiction in this post. :D

    I don't know about the size limit on posts, but I do know that if the post is more than a few paragraphs, my mind tends to glaze over when I read it. Short and concise is much better for posts. You are much more likely to get a response. ;)

    Sorry! It was NOT a post; it was when composing a PM in this forum which seems prety similar to posting in a thread. :confused:

    That's why I was confused in my recollection. :confused:

    Oh, yeah, I've hit that since it includes the previous conversation in your reply.

    So, anyone confirm the maximum for a post? Anyone dare to try? :)

    Hello,

    The maximum size of a post is 5000 characters.
    This will also include characters in links etc.
    There is also a limit of maximum 6 attachments/images in one post.

    Trying with garbage I got this:


    1. The text that you have entered is too long (16163 characters). Please shorten it to 10000 characters long.

    Now you know. Satisfied? :p

    I have done it several times, but then, I was writing an article. 5K sounds about right, when I exceed it I have to split it into chunks.
