Maximum characters of topic titles
« on: September 27, 2015, 10:13:09 am »
Hello there
I am Eddy from Germany.
I used createforum for a while already, but I didn't post in the support forums yet.
However, I used the searchbox if the question has been posted before.
That doesn't seem to be the case...
I noticed that titles of a new topic can have up to 80 characters.
I wanted to change that in the themes and styles, where I can see the CSS codes for formatting, but the lenght of characters isn't included there.
Sometimes I have titles that are longer than 80 characters so the title gets cut off when I reach the limit.
So I am wondering if an admin can increase the limit for my forum.


Thanks in advance

At the correct time it is a hard limit at the moment. Requires a couple different changes to be made.
How high would you want it to go?

I happened to notice this. I am another one who would really like to be able to have somewhat longer topic titles--maybe about 20-25 more characters?

100 characters would help in most cases. To be completely safe 120 characters would be great

I did a quick test. I just typed some letters in the title box and counted the characters with word.
Seems to work so far since it counted 120 characters now.
Thank you :)
