DB will not seed if max post length is reduced


(Sam Saffron) #1

If you set max_post_length to 5000, DB will no longer seed and upgrades will fail.

This happens cause the TOS etc posts are quite long.

@neil they either need to be immune to this limit or you should not be allowed to reduce it that much.

Probably they should be immune to this limit.

Maybe all Staff posts can be immune? That would make it per category.

Looks like skip_validations: true doesn’t skip that validation. Should it?


(Jeff Atwood) #4

I would say yes unless someone can offer a compelling reason not to.


(Neil Lalonde) #5

This problem was fixed.
