As designed  Long topic titles are not trimmed


I've noticed that longer topic titles won't get trimmed on the main page. Look below:


I have the latest version of xenforo installed, it happens on custom skins and default as well, but only when using different language set.

When I switch the language back to english the problem dissappears.

This is the designed behavior as your translation is a fair bit longer than the English version.

Mike, I have the same thing happening on a style I customized the font on. I changed the body font to this:
'Verdana', Trebuchet MS, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif
Reverting the body style property fixes the issue.

You need to edit the template to shorten the length of the title snippet. You can see that most cases fit - it's where there are especially wide characters (lots of caps) that don't.
Hi Mike,

Check my forum main page here.

Some of the titles are shortened properly while some aren't. If it is because of the longer titles the then why some are shortened properly?
