Blank page if too many characters in post

Blank page if too many characters in post 9 Years, 3 Months ago  
I just discovered a bug in the forums posting.
If there are too many characters in a single post, the page displayed will just be blank.

I tested the maximum number of characters twice using the character \"!\" and the word \"wassaaap! \" repeated up to 3281 characters. Anything beyond that will cause a blank page.

Testing it again using return characters, I was only able to fill up to 820 return characters. It seems as though a return is treated as 4 times the length of a normal character as filling out 1 more normal character worked, whereas 2 more characters caused a blank page again.

Is this a known bug?

Or might this be a PHP/MySQL problem?

What version?

Might be an issue with memory and PHP as some of the functions use regex. I just recently replaced a very expensive UTF8 check with a lighter code variant.

I\'m running on the latest 1.0.5NB10 SVN release running on Joomla 1.5.6.

Would you mind trying here in the test section?

It seems to work fine here on this forums.
Could it be a PHP settings issue?

Maybe you can wait for the next build (imminent). It could be that the regex I removed to detect UTF8 is the cause for this...

FYI, the bug occurs when I click on the preview button as well.
I\'ve tested in these forums again with preview and it gives the following error before outputting the actual message:

[quote]Warning: reset() [function.reset]: Passed variable is not an array or object in /home/bestofjo/public_html/components/com_fireboard/template/default/smile.class.php on line 42

Warning: Variable passed to each() is not an array or object in /home/bestofjo/public_html/components/com_fireboard/template/default/smile.class.php on line 44[/quote]

Not sure if that\'s related.

I\'ll give the new build a test run when it\'s out. Thanks! :)

Too funny: I just found that bug while fixing something else. The preview bug only appears on installation with clexuspm (aka future firemessage). Its fixed and will be part of the RC1 build...
