XF 1.2 Possible To Limit 'Author Location'?


Active member
It's currently set to 50 characters, is it possible to limit this?

The problem is, I have a custom style and the location breaks the style when it's over a certain number of characters, and 50 is much too high for me :(.

Hmm, no add-on seems to exist :(.

I can disable the location from showing in the mini-profile and I can create a new custom user field named 'Location2' which I can set up the same with the exception of limiting the characters :). The problem is, I now how two locations which makes no sense to new members.

Is there a way to delete the default Location? Or is this just not possible? Thanks.

Bump for question relating to deleting the 'default' location. As I said, it's all good when I create a new one, I just want to get rid of the original 'Location'. Is this possible to be removed entirely?

You'd have to delete the location from all the templates necessary (mostly in the account/registration, I guess). At least, that'd be the best approximation.
