Another mod brought to you by,


This modification will allow you to remove minimum/maximum character limits for various items, per item, per usergroup.

The following are what you can remove the limits on.
  • Minimum character limit in posts.
  • Maximum character limit in posts.
  • Maximum character limit in PM's.
  • Maximum character limit in visitor messages.
  • Maximum character limit in group descriptions.
  • Maximum character limit in group messages.
There is a few other mods out there like this one, but I feel this has more control over usergroup / item selection.


It is a simple installation, just import the product XML, product-ozzy_character_exclusion

You can edit the options under the settings, Ozzy: Character Exclusion Settings


Complete Feature List
  • Option to disable the mod completely.
  • Option to enable/disable minimum character limit in posts.
  • Option to select which usergroups are excluded from the minimum character limit in posts.
  • Option to enable/disable maximum character limit in posts.
  • Option to select which usergroups are excluded from the maximum character limit in posts.
  • Option to enable/disable maximum character limit in PM's.
  • Option to select which usergroups are excluded from the maximum character limit in PM's.
  • Option to enable/disable maximum character limit in visitor messages.
  • Option to select which usergroups are excluded from the maximum character limit in visitor messages.
  • Option to enable/disable maximum character limit in group descriptions.
  • Option to select which usergroups are excluded from the maximum character limit in group descriptions.
  • Option to enable/disable maximum character limit in group messages.
  • Option to select which usergroups are excluded from the maximum character limit in group messages.

What does 'Marking As Installed' do ?

* It helps you to stay on top of updates - members who have installed modifications will be notified whenever new updates are available.

* For security issues - vbulletin.org will contact all members who have installed a modification whenever a security issue is brought to their attention.

* Marking a modification as installed also helps me know how many people are using my work, giving me extra incentive to provide more features and new modifications.

I appreciate the support!

Installed this on 4.2.2. It doesn't seem to be working.

I've found that the ozzy_character_exclusion_settings group is created and all the settings in that group contain the correct values.

But the code that changes the postminchars global variable doesn't seem to work.

Any ideas?

Nope. I just downloaded the latest version, 1.1.0 (I had 1.0.0) after uninstalling the previous one. Installed and it still doesn't work.

Change hook location of "Exclude Groups From Min / Max Characters" from parse_template to global_start and it works.
Mark as installed. No more typing lot of dots to post short words

Hmmm, maybe that will work for sv1cec too. Thanks for the heads up, we will see what he/she says when they get back to this.

Thanks for marking as installed.
