    Hi and goodday I have just started a new group called sharing the solution...
    Firstly i was wondering if there is any way around the limited capacity of a 1000 letters per topic/post? as i have had to result in splitting up my Post into several smaller post and it just feels restrictive and unneccessary? is there anyway this could be expanded?

    :miserable:? this one works?http://www.suicideforum.com/images/smilies/h1026.gifsecoundly but this one dosent from the more option.. I have tried to insert smiles and animations to add a creative feel to my posts but it just seems to only register the letters and the images wont appear? am i doing something wrong? Thankyou would much appreciate a solution...Peace and light

    I feel your pain! I had these problems with the Book Club group I formed. Unfortunately I believe these are just limitations of the Vbulletin groups functions. I have read your group and I wholeheartedly agree with sharing solutions - perhaps you would get more 'traction' on a thread in the Road to Recovery section (groups never really seem to get much activity and I think that new members to the forum don't necessarily find them) - if you opened a thread with what you have posted in the group you will have more formatting options and I would definitely get involved as I think it is an excellent idea, and exactly what the Road to Recovery forum is for.

    Sorry that wasn't more helpful - I have tried to overcome all those issues with the groups before and gave up in frustration.

    I'll look through the vBulletin settings to see if there's any way to extend the character limit. Having it stuck at 1000 is just pointless, and if there's a way to extend it, I'll do it and then let you know.

    OK, fixed the character limit, it's now 10000. I haven't yet figured out why smilies and animations won't post, but I'll keep working on it.
