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. :)

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. ;)

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.
