    Post Data: Is there an array data post limit? It cuts off on the half part of my form.

    Asked by webdesign2 on February 10, 2013 at 05:09 PM

    The output array cuts off at a specific point in the HTTP Post & doesn't deliver all the information. Is there something I can do to fix this?

    when you use the form it forwards to a page that displays the contents of the array. You'll notice it only exports a portion of the data.

    POST HTTP POST deliver

    Ok so just to save you some time because the form is extremely long I went ahead and filled it all in for you. And as you saw it does give an output at the end of the post arrays: So here's the issue - 
    This is the output from php's 'print_r($_POST);'

    The post data stops working at 'G7' which is half way through the form. Now I ran further testing before and noticed I could fill in simply the bottom half of the form as well and the data would come up. This led me to believe that there is some sort of maxed out data stream going on. 

    Thanks again

    You are right. I was able to replicate the probelm with your form. While I am not quite certain where the problem lies, I'll forward this to our development team for further investigation. We'll update you here once we heard back from them.

    Thanks!

    @webdesign2

    Sorry for the very late response, but I'd like to let you know that I have done some tests on your form, and found out that the problem is not on our end, but on yours.

    The redirect page's source codes show that all field values are sent via post to your server. It is up to your server to increase the limit of the post data accepted.

    With that said, I have cancelled the bug ticket submitted for your support request.

    Cheers!
