    I seem to have a problem posting a long comment to my blog, short comments work fine. Is there a size limit on comments, or is there a setting to adjust the character count?

    I am using 1.5 and have gone over all options several times, am I missing something?

    TIA

    Just checked the SQL column type for comment_content and it allows for about 64k characters. Exactly how long is this comment?

    It's 1428 bytes, it's not like it's a book. I am able to make shorter comments to the same post, but when I try this longer comment, the page just reloads, but the comment does not show up.

    I have tried on a few other themes, so I don't think it's a theme based problem.

    If you go into PHPmyAdmin and the comment_content 'type' is set to TEXT you can change it ( the comment_content 'type') in the drop down list to MEDIUMTEXT or LONGTEXT.
    That should do it, I think (worked for me in a PHPNuke db).

    Si :)

    How about a plugin that limits the amount of text someone can enter into a comment field? Anyone seen this?

    I'm using WP 1.5.2 and haven't had any problems posting things over 100,000 characters.
