Tech Note: LGF Pages Unlimited
After adding the new feature to LGF Pages that lets you capture HTML code automatically, I realized it exacerbated a problem that had always been in the LGF Pages posting window; if you tried to select more than about 8K of text, you see an error message saying “Request-URI Too Large.” Which sounds a little obscene, but just means that the address line exceeded the (rather inadequate) limit imposed by web servers and browsers.
And the new feature that includes HTML code actually makes this worse, because that HTML code can really eat up the characters.
To celebrate this lifting of the URI Too Large limit, I’ve also increased the size your LGF Pages can be, to 100K from its previous limit of 32K. So now, you can write that Great American Novel that’s been struggling to get out of your brain into an LGF Page. Have at it.
You’ll need to reinstall the bookmarklet to take advantage of these new features; just right-click on the existing one in your browser’s bookmarks bar and delete it, then drag the button in the right sidebar labeled “Create A Page” into the bookmarks bar and you’re done.
