when comcode is used in question field

Comcode used in poll's fields is a great way to produce unusual Polls; see here: A State of Mind - Web 2.0

My comcode is:


If you're tired enough, can you sleep about anywhere?[img="If you're tired enough, can you sleep about anywhere?"][/img]

However, it seems that the question field is used to set SQL queries which are now too long according to this error message:

Expand: Poll Comment ERROR: Poll Comment ERROR:

Thanks for looking into this!

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
