Solved More letters for rank titles

Post by Bjerg on August 16th 2015, 11:24 am

Hello everyone!

I want to type a long rank title with color, but it doesn't fit in the answer bar.
Is there any way to increase the max length of rank titles?

Thanks for reading!

Hi @Bjerg,

We only have less than 100 character limit or 96 characters to be exact for rank title. I don't think it is possible to increase the characters in the rank editbox.

Actually, you could probably extend the rank title with a CSS pseudo element. For example, add the following into the rank title :
Code:
<span class="rank-a"></span>
( you can change rank-a to correspond with the rank title )

Then in CSS you can do something like this :
( Display > Colors > CSS stylesheet )
Code:
.rank-a:after {
  content:"Extending the title..";
}

As far as increasing the limit by default, there's currently not a way.

Hey @Bjerg,

The instructions given by Ange Tuteur will work if you followed the instructions correctly. Of course you can't add html tags to CSS.

For additional information, you can put color to a rank by adding this code: color: 'your color';

Code:
.rank-a:after {
  content:"Extending the title..";
  color: red;
}

color: red;
You may change red to any color or hex color you want.

Okay thank you for your reply! Now I know how to add colors in Css. But I also made a mistake because my forum version is punbb and not phpbb3. I thought that I had phpbb3. Is there a new code for punbb?

@Bjerg, the css code given above will also work in punbb version.

Just to clarify, did you put this code in Rank Title editbox?

Wait nevermind, it is working
I made a spelling typo in the CSS one and not in the
other one.

But it is possible to make multiple rank texts? 3 ranks if possible?

You will have to create it yourself.

Hello, thank you for your reply
but could you explain it more detailed for me?
Because I can't use HTML tags in CSS. What do I do exactly? I also want another color for each rank, which is why I need CSS to type as much letters as I want

Thank you it worked!!!
But how do I add a color for each specific rank?
if I put <font color> it would be too long and it wouldn't fit.
is there something I could do with CSS to change the colors?

You may just have to do as many as you can fit. Since there is no way to expand the limit. Sad


Just do the rank titles you consider most important, leave the rest normal color. That is what happened to me as well. Just had to go a little less fancy then I would have liked.
