Character limit in Profile/About?

  1. I've entered a short biographical paragraph in the "About" section of my profile, which in my theme (Enterprise) shows up at the bottom of each post that I author. Only the first 140 characters show up, however, and when I go back to edit my profile page the paragraph is clipped in the About section as well. This happened in my previous theme (MistyLook) as well, and I just assumed there was a 140 character limit. However, this does not happen to the profile of another author on my blog, whose bio is much longer than 140 characters. What's the deal?

    The blog I need help with is beetlesinthebush.wordpress.com.

  2. Your best bet is to contact staff for this matter http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact

  3. Thread moved to themes forum

  4. whine/ At first my profile was displaying the same way in Twenty Ten and I shortened it. On the User Profile page it officially displays that now there is a 140-character limit.

    Even twitter gives 160 characters for displaying one's profile, people. If you have to set a limit, then 220 characters is more than enough for most.

    And yes, I'll go send a note to Support.

  5. Ah, and just discovered that public profiles are now active on gravatar.
