Limits on write.privacytools.io

There seem to be some limits to the WriteFreely instance, like max number of pictures and links in one post. Would it be possible to scratch those limits?

I keep running into this issue. All I get is a “failed to submit post, please try again” error.
I then have to split up my articles, but that can mean tons of links in the article or elsewhere on the web no longer work. It’s a pain to update all links in the article, but on some other places it’s not even possible.

@jonah do you think you could help me out here?

So far I found out that write freely say that this is not a built in limitation on their end, but must be an error here.

This is what I get in the developer tools:

JSON

code: 500

error_msg: This is an unhelpful error message for a miscellaneous internal error.|

Response payload

1 {“code”:500,“error_msg”:“This is an unhelpful error message for a miscellaneous internal error.”}

Could someone please look into this? I’d really like to start working on my blogs again after almost 3 months…

PS: I just realized that you can link to a section of the post simply with [Chapter](#Chapter) instead of [Chapter](https://url#Chapter).
I removed all unnecessary urls and now the longer version of the post can be saved. So it seems to simply be a limit of https urls.

I’d still like this to be fixed, as I’ll probably still reach the limit at one time (e.g. I now have 196 instead of 306 times https:// in one post that couldn’t be saved before).

I opened an issue at GItHub as I have been opening service issues there, but I cannot give promises on when @jonah might look into this.
