Yeah, sadly I think it is just not seen as a priority. The thing is I'm sure there are a couple here (myself included) who could potentially fix the issue I know they're obviously not going to give us free rein over the forum but my point my stands. I even managed to get a fully functioning forum working with all the sub forums this one had and I did it in an afternoon before the general consensus here was it was a bad idea and they wouldn't use it so I nixed it. I don't use this forum anywhere near as much as I used to because of the errors.

I hate to say it, but given how long this issues has been left ignored. It seems those behind it have simply given up maintaining it.

Perhaps Unlock should just archive and reinstall the forum software? Yes it would lose the historic answers but I've typed several replies to recent posts, got the error message and just can't be bothered to type it all in again. A complete forum reset might be best.

I couldn’t get on for about a week I kept getting an error and yes the error messages keep appearing. I gave up asking Unlock as they never respond to the emails.

Sadly not the issue has been reported again, I find that if you click on post reply instead of reply it helps and when the error screen shows once you have posted 
click home next to ware it says error and once on the Home Screen click latest and the post should be there

I spoke to Debbie last week. 
Apparently it should be back to normal working order by the end of the week.
Fingers crossed.

The only way I could post a topic was to use a one word title, then a one word first message. Post it, and then go back and edit it, at that point it would let me add as much text as I wanted. It says error, but it still posts. So try replying to posts with a single word, post it, and then go back in and edit it and leave your actual reply.

Could be many reasons as to what is causing the error, I can only assume from Debbie's post that there is only one person who maintains the forum which is now starting to exceed storage capacity. To add to the complications as mentioned, with lock down rules being applied, the developer may have to work from home and is unable to access the forum to fix the issue. No other choice but to wait it out and hopefully a fix is applied soon.

Scrub that. I was able to edit a short post once to add more text that went over that limit(see above). However, this only appears to be allowed once as the edit option disappears after you update it.

I wonder if someone has accidentally changed an underlying database field to 255 Text and/or changed its character set?

Test with even more text added by using Edit.

Unfortunately yes issues have persisted for a number of months now. I found anything more than 3 lines of text will fail to post, anything with in will still pop up an error but post will succeed usually.
