What is the character limit on the thread description? And how can you add a bigger character limit to it?

Its 85 right now. You can change the limit in the html for newthread up to 125 after that you must change the varchar field in the database to allow more.

I apologize asking a stupid question, but can this query be ran simply by Import & Maintenance>Execute SQL Query, and adding it to the second window under manual query? (under VB3)? Thanks.

Any way to add this to the editpost so we can add thread descriptions to threads that are already there?

Perhaps I missed the step, but I believe the HTL version needs to support database prefix's. I was able to edit this in via the Hack Manager to get it installed. Nice one, overall--- thanks.

EVERYBODY USING APPLY THIS FIX NOW. There was a major security problem found. This stops the use of html and applies swear filering to the text.

Open functions_newpost.php

Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add Below:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I will update the two install files to have this new change in v1.0.1. The only change will be this security update.
