The title of the post in the "Last Post" column on the forum list seems to be trimmed to about 25 characters, followed by an ellipsis. I would like to allow more characters. I occasionally make small modifications like this to the code. I poked around in the files and can't seem to find where this is done. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Well I have never attempted to expand that item.
But by doing so what page real estate are you willing to sacrifice?

Something has to go to make room for a longer line!

Islands?

As I see it there is lots of room in that column, at least on my forums. And it wraps fine anyways for lower screen resolutions.

Anyways I found it. In case anyone else searches for it, it is in libs/functions_forums.inc.php. There is a variable there "subject_max_length".
