pushing it to the limit

Recommended Posts

I have a client attempting to post HTML code to a database. In this case, it just happens to be longer than 65,535. The database field (mysql TEXT type field) is recording exactly 65,535 characters of the content. Soo... either there is a $_POST limit I need to stay under, or a database limit.

If it's a POST limit, what is the maximum length of POST? Is it 65,535 per variable, or for the whole array?

AFAIK there is not limit to $_POST

It most probably to do with the Text field type, prehaps use MEDIUMTEXT

I dont thnks he using a text field. As no one will write HTML all in one line! ButI I expect its a textarea, however michaellunsford is about the TEXT data type in MySQL.

I'm using a rich text editor that emulates a <textarea> field. I'll keep the mysql limit in mind -- but for now, I have solved the pressing issue at hand. I ran the html through dreamweaver's "clean up html" command. Presto 65,535 is now 8,923. (there were oodles of nested an redundant tags in there)

Thanks for the help!
