#35811 closed enhancement (duplicate)

user_url length should be increased

Default user_url field length in wp_users table should be increased.

Use case: LinkedIn user profile urls may contain non-ascii user names in utf-8 where each non-ascii character will take at least 6 bytes url-encoded.

Example: cyrillic small letter 'а' becomes %D0%B0.

Current length is 100 so the url may not contain more than 15 non-ascii characters which is a serious restriction.

Suggested new length: 200.
