how to control the size limit of posts?

Post by javaperl »

I am a newbie to phpBB. I am guessing this would be a simple question for most of you.

Is there any limit for how many characters can be posted/replied in a message body? What is the default value? How can I change it?

Any help is appreciated.

no, you cannot control that. you can post somewhere on your forums, "PLEASE DONT POST 10 SMILIES IN A ROW". I have had trouble with that before.

Im no phpbb guru, but if you want to limit the characters that someone can post in one post, im sure you can do this. I believe all you would have to do is edit the multi line text field in the templates for the new topic and reply pages. Couldn’t you just put a max characters on it with simple html?
