    Are posts limited to a certain size, such as number of letters or words?

    Also, I see from the demo that Category and Forum names are limited to 50 characters. Can that be expanded with an add-on or customization?

    There is a configurable character limit on posts

    Thank you for your reply. What does "configurable" character limit mean? Does that mean we can decide the size of the limits?

    Yes, in the admin panel you can set the message length (in characters).

    That's awesome. Apologies of this is a stupid question, but is there a limit to the limit we can set? We'll probably want to have plenty of space for very long messages.

    I don't know, sorry. There probably is at least from a technical point of view.

    We set ours as 20000 but I imagine you could go a lot higher.

    Thank you!!

    So far as the other part of my question "Also, I see from the demo that Category and Forum names are limited to 50 characters. Can that be expanded with an add-on or customization?"

    Would it be better for me to start a new thread for this question?

    No, the node title limits cannot be changed.

    Thanks for your reply. Do you know if a web developer or someone could change the code to allow for longer titles?

    Yes, it would be fairly simple to do so.

    There is one addon which lengthens the node titles, but I am not sure if it works with the newest XF versions. You should ask the author of the addon before you install it.
