Another "Extend Custom Title Limit" Thread


Active member
Didn't want to bump a topic... Not sure if we could.

Was looking at this thread: And was confused on how to change it. Do I have to edit the database?

Cause when I tried it like the last post, I got this error:

Mysqli statement execute error : Data too long for column 'custom_title' at row 1
Zend_Db_Statement_Mysqli->_execute() in Zend/Db/Statement.php at line 297
Zend_Db_Statement->execute() in Zend/Db/Adapter/Abstract.php at line 479
Zend_Db_Adapter_Abstract->query() in Zend/Db/Adapter/Abstract.php at line 632
Zend_Db_Adapter_Abstract->update() in XenForo/DataWriter.php at line 1607
XenForo_DataWriter->_update() in XenForo/DataWriter.php at line 1576
XenForo_DataWriter->_save() in XenForo/DataWriter.php at line 1381
XenForo_DataWriter->save() in XenForo/ControllerPublic/Account.php at line 285

XenForo_FrontController->dispatch() in XenForo/FrontController.php at line 132
XenForo_FrontController->run() in /srv/www/ at line 13

I extended it from the limit of 50 to 200 and even 150 and it did it. My members want longer user titles. Help? :3


the problem is, you can't change only the php files( btw, you should use the plugin sys instead of overwriting original files!;) )
you also need to change the database structure

(e.g. with phpmyadmin you need to change the length of the custom_title field in the xf_user table)
