    How does Xenforo count characters?
    I just posted an interview that I got the error, you can't post a message with more than 10,000 characters.

    So I cut and paste into Word to check.
    The message has 1,832 words with 9,885 characters WITH Spaces or 7,969 without Spaces

    So why does this message pop up when I am only using 9,885 characters?

    Did you use any bb code?

    That is from the page source, which includes bb code.

    OH SURE, if you do it THAT WAY :LOL::LOL:
    I now get 10,450 characters with Space. so I am actually over the 10,000 limit - NICE!!!

    Thanks Brogan!

    You could of course increase the message character limit if 10,000 isn't enough.

    Thanks for the setting location. I would've thought 10,000 would be plenty.
    But maybe not for a long article or Interview. I really didn't want to divide into parts.

    Is there a possibility to set different message length for some forums? e.g. forumA 10000 characters, forumB 5000 characters, ...?

    No, it's a global setting.

    I'm posting so that I can come back to this in the future. This may be useful to me in the future, should I have interviews.
