Control Panel -> General -> Primary (tab) -> Maximum Subject Length -> changing this value to a larger one should work

Thanks for your reply.
It's not work.This option is about posting.
Remember at UBB.classic,there is an option about title display in the forum page,about length.

mmkk, this is an issue related to PHP doing a "substr" on your multi-byte Chinese characters.

For example:
Code
$subject_max_length = 26;
substr($returndata[$i]['FORUM_LAST_POST_SUBJECT'], 0, $subject_max_length);


What its basically doing is taking your string of Chinese characters, and displaying as many bytes of them as it can (Chinese characters are composed of three-bytes, IIRC). But when it finishes with the last set of three-bytes, it can only produce 2 of them before sbstr says its reached it max number of bytes. Thus, only two of the required three bytes are displayed. And you are shown an incomplete (broken) character, as a black diamond.

Originally, "mb_substr" should have been used, rather than just "substr." But...

This code has been in UBB.threads for many years. It was caught about a week ago, and converted to use the "text-overflow:ellipsis;" CSS. So that the processing should happen at the point of output, rather than the point when the data is freshly grabbed from the database.

The non-technical answer smile : Its been fixed for the upcoming UBB.threads 7.6.1 release.

Thanks for reporting this for your language. This is a huge help!
