Can I lengthen the abbreviated titles in Main_Forum_Topics block

The MAIN_FORUM_TOPICS which I have on my start page shows abbreviated titles - is there a way to let the titles be full length as shown in the actual forums?

I would guess that we used TRUNCATE_LEFT in one of the templates, and there's a number used there that determines how much truncation happens.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

What a co-incidence…I'm working with this as we type. The file in question is:
ocp/themes/default/templates/BLOCK_MAIN_FORUM_TOPICS_TOPI
C.tpl
{$TRUNCATE_SPREAD,{TITLE`},25}
Second line, change 25 to whatever you'd like. Done!
