    When I take the time to post and extremely large message in my forums and then hit Submit Reply. I get the following error. Is there any way to change this timeout?

    Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /home/atphotos/public_html/forum/includes/functions.php on line 1481

    Yes. You or your host will need to edit and increase the max_execution_time variable. Try 60 or 90. Then restart Apache after making this change.

      I'm having exactly the same problem. We have a few *very large* posts that act as topic guides that we had no problem editing before in vb2, but since upgrading to vb3 it takes a minute or more (and in the case of one, it simply timesout). What can possibly be taking so long? - anything that takes more than a few seconds you need to ask why the delay?! Is it to do with the updating the search table, or something to do with similar threads? Please shed some light on what's causing it to take so long.

        Try disabling automatic similar thread search:

        Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Message Searching Options -> Automatic Similar Thread Search

        See if that helps.
