I am trying to link a DNN page to an external URL.  The URL contains encrypted login parameters, and when I paste it in as the location and save it, the last 4 characters gets chopped off, so the auto login fails.  The full string I am trying to use is 259 characters, but it seems to be only retainining the first 255.  The other 4 get lost.  Is 255 the maximum number of characters I can use here, or is it possible for me to increase that number?  If it is adjustable, can you tell me where I would do this?

The Url field in the Links table is configured as nvarchar(250)

Not sure what repercussions there might be if you increased it.

Links table is used by DNN Links module only, for Tab links, URL column in Tabs table is relevant - which is limited in size as well and you'll Need to adopt size of Parameters in stored procedures AddTab and UpdateTab, in order to increase the max size of this value.
