There seems to be a limit in PHPBB and longer posts are not allowed. Anybody knows where to increase this limit?

I'm talking with only partly checking but I think it's a limit of the database "text" column-type maximum length. Check out mysql column types (if you're using mysql). I think the next step upwards would be changing the column type of the posts_text.post_text column to some kind of blob. Not sure how advisable this is though (ie whether it would cause slowness).

Thank you so much for your help!
I was thinking a limit of maybe 7500 caracters would be enough. Right now the limit is lower.

well the column for storing the post_text is a TEXT field and allows up to 65,535 (216 – 1) characters so it isn't limited to the database.
I don't see a setting in the admin configuration for post size.
