Hi, I know there's been a similar topic before, but nothing really came of it. We started hitting our server limit for number of POST variables allowed (200, I think) when we had a ~15 field form. I noticed that there are a lot of POST variables that are empty (when there aren't any conditions or rulesets for a field for instance).

Is there any way these can be trimmed down? We were able to ask our server admin to up our limit, but it was a little disconcerting and confusing when we initially tried saving the forms and we'd be stuck on "Saving..." with no error or response.

Otherwise, we love the module and use it in a lot of sites!

The module has a bunch of setting files, each form field has like ~10 or so configuration options. I'm not sure there is anyway to get around this unless it saves the fields individually but then that 'breaks' the mould of the saving and publishing actions. If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them :)
