If i input title to long,page display "Internal server error system error log is recorded, error will be fixed as soon as possible please report the error to the site administrators if you wish "

log dispaly " TIME: 2012-02-19 17:22:52,437 MSG: 錯誤: 值對型別 character varying(300) 而言太長"

I advise tiltle do checking,if title to long ,page don't permit input.

edit: fixed in the repository, will be in version 0.7.40.

In encoded unicode characters byte length and the character count are not the same.

In your case the unicode string is below the character count limit and the byte length is above, so the first check passes, but on the level of database it fails and you get an internal server error.

Now adjusted the input length validator.

Evgeny, I got the latest master off Github today, I'm getting the error message 'The title is too long, maximum allowed size is 255 bytes' for even very short messages. If I try an all-Latin title I get an error page with: "__init__() got an unexpected keyword argument 'parser'". Do I post a separate bug or is it something you're working on.

Sorry this seems to have been related to the html5lib issue - it went away after I downgraded to v0.90

changing from:

elif encoded_value > self.max_length:


elif len(encoded_value) > self.max_length:

solves the issue!

Oh, man, thanks. That was a silly bug! Pushed this fix to the repo.
