    Is this not present in XenForo adminCP or am I missing it?

    It's not a configurable option but it is a simple template edit.

    In the template node_forum_level_2 replace the number in red with the desired character limit.

    {xen:phrase latest}: <a href="{xen:link posts, $forum.lastPost}" title="{$forum.lastPost.title}">{xen:helper wordTrim, $forum.lastPost.title, 30}</a>

    Interesting. I have set the titles to 50. Now the titles are cut off by the div. How do I widen the div?

    Edit: I found it. I changed the width in nodeLastPost

    Thanks Chris!

    In EXTRA.css:
    .forumNodeInfo .nodeLastPost 
    	width: 360px;
    But then you might need to also change the nodeControls CSS (the RSS icon):
    .forumNodeInfo .node .nodeControls
    	right: 400px;
    Adjust those values to suit.
