    I haven't found a clear answer on how to increase the character limit on my forums. The default is 10000 characters and 20 pictures, how do I go about increasing that?

    I use the Flexile theme if that makes any difference.

    Change Maximum Message Length and Maximum Images Per Message.

    Mistypants, you are the best. That is much simpler than what I was reading, thank you so much.

    Instead of creating yet another thread, I thought I'd just post my question in here.

    Is it possible to increase the Maximum Message Length for just particular user groups, such as Administrators?

    Not that I know of. You'll likely need an add-on.

    Doh! No problem I suppose. Thanks for the quick reply :)

    Yes, it would be useful to control Max Message Length by Groups.

    Is this still true. No such option in XF core?

    An add-on would still be needed for a per user group basis.

    Is there any harm in increasing the character limit?
