Im attempting at making an html page on xenforo and im entering in the description; but it seems its too big (My guess is thats the problem...) How do I allow it to be this big?

This is the error:

The xf_node.description field accepts up to 64k of text. That is plenty for any description.

Are you mistakenly entering your template code into the description? There is a separate field for that:
