  • Setting the thread title length...

    Where and how do I adjust the maximum length (in characters) for a thread title?

    Admin CP -> Templates -> Modify -> [expand list]

    New Posting Templates -> newthread and newreply. change the number in red:

    <tr bgcolor="{secondaltcolor}">
    <td bgcolor="{secondaltcolor}"><normalfont><b>Subject:</b></normalfont></td>
    <td bgcolor="{secondaltcolor}"><normalfont><input type="text" class="bginput" name="subject" value="$subject" size="40" maxlength="85" tabindex="1"></normalfont></td>
    </tr>

    editpost. change the number in red:

    <tr>
    <td bgcolor="{secondaltcolor}" nowrap><normalfont><b>Subject:</b></normalfont></td>
    <td bgcolor="{secondaltcolor}"><normalfont><input type="text" class="bginput" name="title" value="$postinfo[title]" size="40" maxlength="85" tabindex="1"></normalfont></td>
    </tr>

      Done the above. The forum display is now fine with long thread title, but the threadview is still being chopped off. Attached is an example:

      Any idea what caused this?
