How do you make it so it shows more of the post title in the node list?

See this page:

http://www.studentfilms.com/

See where the latest posts are and the titles are cut off with the .... - how do I make it show more of the title there without having to hover the mouse?

Look in the node_forum_level_2 and node_category_level_2 templates for these lines:

{xen:helper wordTrim, $forum.lastPost.title, 30}
{xen:string wordTrim, $category.lastPost.title, 30}

Change the value to suit.

You didn't say you wanted it to wrap, just show more characters.

You will need to make CSS changes to .node .nodeLastPost {white-space: normal }
You will more than likely need to make further changes to accommodate the extra row used by the title.
