  • [Forum] How do I allow a long Thread Title to wrap over to a second line

    How do I allow a long Thread Title to wrap over to a second line so that the title does not get truncated on the single top line?

    Here are screen shots of the sample full thread titles as they appear in the New Posts or Active Posts search results on a single line using FULL SCREEN view:

    And here is how the same thread titles get truncated because there is no wrap to a second line:

    And here is how I want the thread titles to wrap to second and third lines (as we had in VB Ver 3):

    Increase the amount of characters allowed in a thread title.
    I personally would reduce the size of the font and unbold everything. That's just eating up a lot of real estate on the line. Using a smaller font size would allow for more text to be displayed in the same space.

        I still need to know where I can change the amount of characters allowed in a thread title.

            Apparently that does not control the ability to force the topic title to wrap to a second line. Please see the image samples I posted above.

              at a certain point, maybe you have to set a fixed width of the forums (or that specific table/column). I'm not sure... My forum is fixed at 1000px wide.

              (I bet someone from vB knows though.)

                I already posted the css for this very recently. However, it looks like I didn't keep a copy of it. If I recall, the overflow is set to hidden for the title and you need to change that to visible and then set the next line to clear:both (something like that).

                If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

                  I think what you are referring to is here:
                  http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...dth-adjustment

                  In the above thread you provide the valuable code I needed to add to the additional.css . Then the author of the thread returned and stated he changed it from 40% to 100%, which is what I did - and it the title wrap is now WORKING!

                  Go here to see the difference you made for me.

                  The remaining area for title wraps is now in the Active Topics search results that are still not wrapping. They too are getting truncated.

                  Using the above sample link , go ahead and click on the nav bar item titled Active Topics and choose last 3 Days. (If you are prompted to log in, use the User Name GUEST, and a password of 2010 - in order to see the search results on that page are still not wrapping.

                  Where do I change the "overflow" to change from "hidden" to "visible" ?

                      That is not the thread I was thinking of. The CSS was something like this (this is for the search results page).

                      Code:
                      .searchtitle {overflow: visible; height: auto;}
                      .threadbit .threadmeta {clear:both;}

                        Wonderful job, Lynne! That did it! Thanks so much for your help. The threads are now wrapping in all of the search results pages without getting truncated.

                          Is that existing code to be edited, or code to be added to additional.css?
                          s.molinari - I would like to ask all customers to definitely feedback issues with the software and be specific with the issues, but to basically suck-up what happened in the past and try to just look forward.

                            It is the code to be ADDED to the additional.css

                            And it is two lines of code, as shown.

                              Eh, that's what I tried at first. While it does, in fact, wrap the titles to the second line, it makes the rest of each block look like crap.
