Solved Limit the number of title to display

Post by blitzkrieg September 25th 2014, 5:11 am

I just want to ask for support if how do I limit topic title display on the post.

Take a look at the screenshot: This on my forum:

Limit the number of title to display Emo10

This is how I want it to be: Forumotion Title display..

Limit the number of title to display Shorte10

If I have a long title it almost occupy the space. I just want to shorten like here in forumotion.

Hello blitzkrieg,
Here is something you can try to do this.

1. Go to ACP
2. Click on General
3. Find Messages & E-Mail
4. Click Configuration
5. Scroll down to "Topics"
6. Find "Topic Title Length"
7. Change the length limit to what you want.
8. Click Save!

This should be what allows you to change the topic length appropriately to what you want! If it doesn't work, please let me know so I can help you further! Hope this helps!

Ramdaman is correct. I don't really want to limit the number of post title. All I want is to make the post title in straight line but if it is too long, a dot would appear. See preview above...

Anyone has the idea?

If you try to see the title as a guest then definitely there is no problem on it because you cannot see the qoute, multi-qoute and edit button, but if you're a regular member, you can see the title if too long it will go on the next line same on the preview on the first post.

Anyway here is the sample link: Here

Then it is an issue with the width of that area.  If it was longer, the title would be on one line.

So how will I fix it? Instead that it will go on next line it will just shorten the display text and dot will appear next the same as here in forumotion (see screenshot on the first post).

put this in your CSS files at the top and see if that works;)


Code:
.postbody h2.topic-title a {
    display: block;
    overflow: hidden;
    text-overflow: ellipsis;
    white-space: nowrap;
}
