How to change character limits in profile fields

  1. Edit app/models/account.rb
  2. On lines #366-370, define your own string_limit. You will probably be most interested in changing if account.local? 255 to something <= 2047, since vanilla instances will refuse your fields as invalid if they are longer than this. You can also optionally decide to accept remote profile fields that are longer than 2047 characters (but why would you, if virtually all are below this?), or be more strict and only accept shorter profile fields.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
