  • Hello, is there a way to set up a maximum comment length? Recently I received a couple of VERY lengthy comments, that made my sidebar crashing (i.e. disappearing).
    Thanks for your help.

  • Why is this crashing your sidebar ?
    I have seen sites with comments I would class as book chapters, so I would suggest it’s a theme / plugin / changed code problem.

    I’m using Semiologic 2.5.4. After those comments, the sidebar disapperared. I have removed those 2 comments, and the sidebar came back…I made a cut and paste of them on Word: a total of 56 pages, Verdana 10 points. Actually, something very similar to a book chapter…!

    It could be that the comment authors wrote their tomes in something like Word, and that the copy/paste has carried bad characters across – there will be nothing at all wrong with your theme / code.

    Try pasting their comments into notepad++ or another plain text-editor then saving them out, then pasting them as comments. If you have such verbose commenters now, it’s important we discover how they can contribute without fear of breaking things.

    I strongly hope it was a one-off situation!! Thanks, Podz, I will try what you have suggested.

    I dont want take over this thread but I am curious how this would be possible.
