[resolved] Major issue with plugin - with too long URL (6 posts)

    My users have continuously reported that there is an issue with this plugin. When posting slightly longer messages, they receive this error:

    Request-URI Too Large
    The requested URL's length exceeds the capacity limit for this server.

    I tested this myself and it seem to happen when replying to an entry if the reply is lengthy.

    I have done some research and it appears that this plugin is abusing GET. Is there any way we can use POST to deliver the data? Please read more about this issue here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2891574/how-do-i-resolve-a-http-414-request-uri-too-long-error

    It would be very helpful if you could update this great plugin so that we can continue using it. If you decide to perform an update, can you kindly reply with what exactly you updated with, so that I can add the modification manually.

    Okay I managed to check the URL and boy is it long! For the moment, to fix this issue, I chose to display 6 messages per page rather than 10. It seems that all the messages are added to the URL, here it is:

    Just copy that entire code, it is one line of URL. Michael do you have any solution to this issue?

    Thank you for your time...

    Hi,

    Sorry for my late answer. I've tried to fix this behavior with version 2.2.3. For a compare of changes, see: http://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/628180/wp-admin-microblog
    The important changes are in wp_admin_microblog_screen.php lines 98-164 and 328-330.

    @Michael thank you very much for the respond. I will add the proposed changes tomorrow in the office and report back within the next 24 hours of how it works. Until then...

    I performed the nessesary changes using the change compare page that you linked and everything is working like a charm so far. I just uploaded it to the live site and will see if there are any random issues once the plugin is being used. This is great, thank you very much Michael!

    I will report back whenever I find any issues to further improve this already very handy plugin.
