Subject line limitation

Post by max » Fri Aug 19, 2011 3:06 pm

The subject line appears to be limited to 60 chars only. Can you please increase it a little bit?

PHPBB limits the subject line length exactly to 60 characters :)
It seems there is no way to increase this limitation in the administration panel.

And it is too complex to make it happen with a brute force.

Not really - now that I am aware about the limitation. Let it stay this way for now.

I came across it when I noticed a typo in the subject of one of my posts. It was the 61th character that I lacked to avoid that typo:). Once I tried to correct it and noticed this limitation, I just reworded the subject to fit in 60 chars.

Yeah, bad luck with this 61 character :)
There were a couple of times when I stumbled upon this limitation. I have had too many words in my mind for a news title.
But this limitation eventually was of help to make the title small and precise.
