#50265 closed enhancement (duplicate)

We attempted to add a post type the other day which was more than 20 characters, this resulted in the post type not being registered as per documentation:

Limit is var char 20.

There are scenarios where you want to use a unique prefix and this combined with a descriptive name of the post type exceeds 20 characters.
