Post size limit

Hi all

I recently installed useBB 1.0.16 and find that my users are limited to post sizes of 64KB.

This makes it awkward since it's used as a way to post long articles, which on occasion exceed this limit.

Please help me, how do I get this limit increased? 256KB would be a good start.

This is the limit of a MySQL TEXT column. You might try changing the usebb_posts content column to have the LONGTEXT type. I am not sure whether it will keep the existing contents (it should I guess) so try this on a copy of the database, or a new set-up.

Thanks! That worked perfectly. It even kept the original contents, so my backup was never needed.
