truncated article is not as big as it should be[edit]


We are getting "WARNING: template omitted, post-expand include size too large" comments on a large article on our corporate Wiki, which is supposed to be indicative of post-expand page size larger than $wgMaxArticleSize.

This setting is currently defined in our DefaultSettings.php to $wgMaxArticleSize = 2048; and has not been overridden in LocalSettings.php.

I have, however, copy-pasted the HTML source of such rendered page on a text file and, to my surprise, the resulting file is only 564 kb - only about 25% of the max size!

Do the rendered images count when checking the page size against $wgMaxArticleSize?

There are no images on the article, except multiple (697, to be accurate) repetitions of the same fontawesome folder_open icon, as exemplified by the image below:

How exactly is the page size calculated and how can I optimize the page to use less space in such a case?

Thanks in advance
