    Say after like 35 characters, the title display is replaced by ... at the end of the title. How?

    I guess, this css needs some modifications...

    .discussionListItem .title {
      font-size: 10.5pt;
      word-wrap: break-word;
    i tried putting this in above CSS but it did not work....

    text-overflow: ellipsis;
    max-width: 100%;
    display: block;
    overflow: hidden;

    The ellipsis will be applied for the overflow condition.

    If you want to trim the title to 35 characters and automatically apply ellipsis, you can use the wordtrim helper, like so:
    {xen:helper wordtrim, $thread.title, 35}
    Steve F and Neutral Singh like this.
