Title: Increasing max title length.
Post by: themavesite on January 09, 2017, 03:12:29 PM
Hi,

I need a bit help with increasing the max title length.
I already changed Post.template.php in my default template, so now you can enter a really long title (250 chars) when you create a topic. However when you post the topic, the title only shows a part of the title, where would I need to fix this?

When I then try to edit my topic again, the title has shrunken there as well!

Edit: just found out the "preview" of a new topic also cuts off the title.

Have you tried using the search function?

Both these changes still don't make the titles appear longer than the default of 80 characters.

Is there a mod to do that without directly altering the code?
