Actual character limit
« on: August 11, 2013, 07:56:02 pm »
Hello!


I recently created a forum where users can share codes that go into a game we have developed, allowing us to play each other's levels within the game. In order to make it possible to correctly copy the code, we need to use the code tag. However, here's the problem. When I set the maximum post size at 2,000,000 characters and try to post a code that is 800,000 characters, it gets cut off, and stops at some point. When I set the maximum to unlimited, it cuts off after a point as well. Is there anything I can do to get around this so that we can post our codes? It does the same thing whether we use the code tag or not.


Am I doing something wrong? If there is nothing that can be done, does anyone know what the actual maximum size is?

Thanks for the info. The actual maximum we would need for our board is about 840,000. Sorry, I know that that's a lot, but at this time, it's only for hosting one post. Most other posts would not exceed 200,000 characters.

This is our board.


Again, thanks for the help!

Hmm looks like it set to allow storage of 16,777,215 characters have to see if there is another limit somewhere else.

Update. It's only displaying like the last 52,000 characters in the code box now. Not sure if that helps at all.

Hey, I was just wondering if you were able to figure anything out about that limit. Nobody seems to be able to post any more than 55,000 characters.


Thanks again!

Haven't been able to figure it out. Looks like a bug in the core system still thinking of a way to deal with it.
