The website I have built using whitehousepro has been going great. just one problem happened yesterday where the person adding content had put a lot of text on a page and now the content of the page has disappeared. i edited the content and the page appeared. Is their a limit to the amount of characters you can add to a page (only using post for the blog page). Can you put more words into a post as opposed to a page I have had to put the content of one page into 5 other pages so they all appear. Does this make sense http://www.ihubbu****siness.co.uk/internet-mar****keting-tips/ just delete 8 asterix to get url. many thanks ps just checked and word count was 5331

There's no limit to the length of a post or a page to my knowledge. I have in one of my sites, a post that when printed is 89 pages long. It's actually a cookbook on candymaking with 18,224 words. On another site, I have included a piece of Federal legislation on a page that when printed is 2411 pages long with a word count in excess of 130,000. More than likely, the problem is not the number of words, but something in the content that's broken, causing the page to vanish. I'd suggest a test. Copy all the text into a text editor all the 5,331 words. Then, highlight, copy and paste into a new page. See if that vanishes. If it does, the drinks are on me - we will both need them. However, if it works, then it's something that was in the text like a hidden tag or broken code. This can happen when people paste from word processors without using the importer.

You have to remember though, a lot of small time hosts actually set a PHP POST limit, which is the size of the payload when you click apply/update save or whatever. This could be the reason. You can sometime extend the limit using php overrides in .htaccess or ini_set() in wp-config.php, depends on your host though. Best thing to do is start by asking them if you have a POST limit, dont let them get confused with upload limit, its nothing to do with that.
