When setting an avatar by URL, if the URL of the image is long, I cannot write all of the URL in the input field.

How can I increase the amount of URLs a user can enter in the input 

I would appreciate it if you could tell

Hi @user1038,

That's not easy to do. The max length of the avatar URL is 300. I have no idea how can an avatar URL be longer then 300 char. Can you leave an example?

 

In any case you should do the following instruction bellow and wait for the next wpForo update, it comes next week, we increased the URL length up to 990.

Use phpMyAdmin plugin and open your database. Tank make sure the table prefix of all your tables is wp_, if it's not wp_ change the red marked wp_ in the SQL query below and execute it:

ALTER TABLE `wp_wpforo_profiles` CHANGE `avatar` `avatar` VARCHAR(990);

Upon further investigation, I found that all tables are prefixed with "wp_".
I shared this with you because there may be a mistake.
If there are no mistakes, I will wait for an update.
