Increasing the length of the URL for comments (8 posts)

    I've had 5 trackbacks that have exceeded the 100 character limit for URLs in comments, and the urls get truncated. It's the cruft free urls, they're really playing havoc.
    I've manually updated my table to increase the URL limit to 200. You probably want to consider doing this with the new release.

    Her problem has nothing to do with the post slug.
    The URI limit is with comment URI's not post permalinks.

    the idea is use post slugs for future posts.
    dont render the old links dead...

    Mind if I ask what the slug is supposed to be used for? :)

    this post used post slug as the URI generated is diff from post header:
    i really cannot afford an apple for another 800 months
    which would have made the URI as:
    http://blog.sushubh.com/archives/2004/03/19/i-really-cannot-afford-an-apple-for-another-800 months/
    yuckie!
