Solved Extending the 'From' field in the thread Profiles?

Post by Testicles_the_Greek on July 23rd 2013, 9:20 pm

I'm using PunBB and am wondering how I would extend the number of character spaces I can use in the 'From/Location' field in the Profile as seen in threads/posts?

I'm thinking that I want to type a longer phrase (ie. The Edge of Beyond) beneath my avatar, but there isn't enough character spaces? So if I tried it now, with only 15 characters, I'd get  I'd get The Edge of Bey

I believe there is a set limit for the number of characters allowed in a profile field.  Check the profile field in the administration panel and see what the limit is.  I believe it is 15,000 characters.  Spaces are included in the count.
