JEvents 1.4

Can't change the title length

Postby jedburdick » Mon Mar 02, 2009 4:02 pm


I love the component... I am using it with DT register, but I have been unable to change the title length (either manually or with admin setting). Our titles are sometimes very long. I have done A LOT of searching related to this topic. I changed a few lines in "events.html.php" line 63:

Code: Select all
// [mic] if title is too long, cut 'em for display
$tmpTitle = $title;
if( strlen( $title ) >= $cfg->get('com_calCutTitle')){
$tmpTitle = substr( $title, 0, $cfg->get('com_calCutTitle')) . ' ...';
} ?>

doesn't work for me. I have tried allowing more characters in the admin field too... still cuts off at 100 chars. I have not been able to find "100" in any of the event docs... so it makes me think it's a Db entry...

I dunno i'm stumped, I would greatly appreciate any help. I am running joomla 1.5.3, in Legacy mode. jEvents 1.4.3

Any help???

No one has run into this? The title length in the admin settings seem to have NO EFFECT...

what view are you trying to affect? the setting in admin works for me. Although, interestingly, my copy of events.html.php is different than yours - it has the truncation value hard coded.
