15 url limit but won't let me include 15 urls

Post by scoopyfrog »

I'm trying to put adoptables in my signature. 5 from Magistream, 5 from Final Outpost, and 5 from dragcave.

It's 15 urls in total. But every time I hit submit, I just get the error message that says "maximum amount of urls is 15."

Chicken Smoothie has the exact same forum/profile engine and also only allows 15 urls. My signature was accepted fine, and I only get the error message if I try to add more than 15. What's going on?

Can you post here what exactly you are trying to put in your signature that the site won't let you so I can take a closer look at what's going on? ^_^

I do not get the error message when I tick the box "Do not automatically parse URLs" below the signature text field.

For me, it seems to be 14 links max.

After Christmas when I had bunches of eggs and hatchlings to grow I could sometimes get 15 and sometimes 14, even with it all being MS links. Perhaps it's a hard character limit as well as a url limit? Or perhaps it's a signature height limit and when you go to a second line it's too much? Not sure. I'm sure Rosehill will figure it out, just wanted to say it's not just outside links.
My join date says 2012, when I made an account I promptly forgot about until August 2023, so I'm really *gasp* a newbie. :)
I have no phobias or disliked critters. Feel free to click anything in my keep, except the "Quests" tab. I think you'll find plenty there without those 2 or 3.

The maximuum height of an image in the signature is 300 pixels, but it wouldn't prevent links. And if there was text or links that would make the overall height of the signature go above 300 pixels, the forum just cuts of all excess above that and doesn't show it.

The maximum character limit of a signature is 400 characters, and if that went over instead of the link amount, the forum would say that the character limit went over.

What the forum software does by itself, however, is think that the last image within a link tags is also a link, and counts that one towards the link limit. This may be a bug or a feature of the forum software itself, and I won't be digging deep to change that, as there is an easy way to make this work, like kunigund said:

So if you want to put in 15 links and the site complains you've gone over the limit even when you haven't, check the abovementioned "Do not automatically parse URLs" checkbox when saving your signature. ^_^
