XF 1.4 route filter url length limit


Well-known member

if I create a route filter with a quite long url, I got an error that the url must be 25 chars or shorter.

Someone knows how to avoid this?

Thank you.

You would need to change the limits in the DB (and the corresponding data writer) to allow longer prefixes.

That said, this relates only to the prefix part of the find route, and since route prefixes themselves have a 25 character limit, making a longer find route wouldn't actually match.
