Increase Number of characters in posts

It's probably staring me right in the face, but I can't seem to find where I can increase the number of words, characters, upload size of pictures, videos, etc. 

Help and old man//// please!Select image: ocf_emoticons/cry

Never mind I found the answer by post on google. Boy was that buried.
Just in case somebody else is looking for the answer to that question: Go to the admin zone, then the usergroup then edit users group, then restrictions and then increase Maximum Post length. apparently comcode characters are different from regular characters as 30000 seems to be a lot but it isn't. I increased it x 10 and I was finally able to post 1997 words, 4 pics and 15 embedded youtube videos.

The Admin Zone search feature is very useful for finding where options are. I put in "maximum characters" and it found it.

  • 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 ocPortal on fun personal projects.

In fact, if you find you try and use the Admin Zone search and it doesn't find an option, let us know.

We regularly tune it. I just tuned it with a few more synonyms so even searching "total bytes" would find the "Maximum post length" group option you needed.
