Hi

I am testing a joomla site with an east asian language and only part of the title gets displayed on the browser + admin panel.

How could I over come this? Other than the title everything else is fine.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Tx

Increasing the variable character size resolves the problem.

This is what I did.

In phpmyadmin i increased the character field to 255.

field: title, title_alias
table: jos_content

backup tables also need changes.

this is a known issue for long. I read forum stickies few months ago.

I solved the title limitation problem and here is how:

In the MySQL Database, table jos_content, fields "title" and "title_alias" - Change the Length/Values to 255 (by default its 100 which caused me a prb)

doing this will only change the backend and still you will not be able to enter more than 100 characters in frontend admin panel. to change that open the file
\administrator\components\com_content\admin.content.html

and in line no 589:
title; ?>" />

in line no 603:
title_alias; ?>" size="30" maxlength="100" />

replace 100 with 255 (where i have marked in red)

Thats all and you can increase the title length

Thanks

Thats a great tip. Im having problem with the Module Titles. I found the table via myphpadmin and changed it from 100 to 255. However, I do not see the file I should changed to let the back end allow 255.

Anybody know ?

Thanks
