Support » Plugin: Post Snippets » maximum of data sets

  • Resolved alex666666


    Good day
    Is there a size limitation or a Maximum of data sets?
    After capturing a large number of snippets, no new ones can be saved, changed or deleted.
    What can it be and what can I do? It is very important for me to get a short-term solution!
    Thanks for a quick reply.

  • Me too!
    After reaching some kind of limit I can’t change anything, not even delete or edit existing ones!
    I saw an earlier posting, maybe this will help? Change the PHP code?

    WOW, after hours of research I found the solution how to go back.
    Maximum entries are 199 – don’t go to 200, there is no way back!
    Go to CPANEL, open phpMyAdmin, > Database (chose your one, the main one), >wp_options
    Go there and inside wp_options search either a unique term from your post snippets, that is nowhere else on your website or go direct to:
    option_id 190105
    option_name post_snippets_options

    Click “edit / bearbeiten”

    You will see a BIG textfile. Make a copy from it and save it in a text editor, that you can paste it back, if you should do some mistake.

    Scroll to the beginning of the code.

    You will see:

    Modify this to

    Then scroll to the absolute bottom of the text. Erase the last entry, it looks something like this:
    i:199;a:7:{s:5:"title";s:14:"KTGlobalTitel2";s:4:"vars";s:0:"";s:9:"shortcode";b:1;s:3:"php";b:0;s:11:"wptexturize";b:0;s:7:"snippet";s:108:"Erläuterungen zu den Kategorien dieser Illustration von der armenischen Künstlerin & Karikaturistin Agnes.";s:11:"description";s:0:"";}

    i is the entry number, but it starts to count at 0, so that why this is i:199 and not I.200

    Erase all, not just the part between {} but also the first part: i:199;a:7:

    After erasing the code will end with }}

    On the bottom of the editor you can click on OK, that it saving the modified text.
    Plugin will work again, but don’t do more than 199 post snippets.

    Hi Agnes

    Yes, this is correct. That’s why one of my biggest priorities now is to first migrate the data to another format (most likely CPT’s). This can be expected in version 3.0.

    Johan and I have agreed that I will take over development of Post Snippets. You can read more on

    Please let me know if you have any issues or suggestions!

    Kind regards



    Amazing! We will pay you as a PREMIUM plugin if you continue! 🙂 Thanx a lot.
