The amount of text exceeds database limits for this page (65536)

I'm getting this error when I try to create a new page (save after copy-pasting some content abstract):

"The amount of text exceeds database limits for this page (65536)"

But the text inserted into WYSIWYG area doesn't seem to be nearly as much size.


The issue might arise from hidden formatting added by MS Word and other editors to HTML.

Excessive formatting in abstract (normally copied from MS Word) can increase the size of file 10x.

Example of formatting viewable in HTML mode:

"left !important;border-left:rgb(0,0,0) 0px;padding-bottom:0px !important;line-height:14px "


  • Copy-paste the text into plain text mode editor (Notepad or DreamWeaver code window). Then copy-paste again into job board software WYSIWYG editor. Formatting will get lost (bold, italic, size, hyperlinks). These would need to be added manually.
  • Or try the auto-replace feature of Notepad or Dreamweaver to simply cut off repetitive formatting bits.
