Don't truncate activity titles (#23575).


#1 Updated by JW Fuchs about 1 year ago

In fact the truncation here is at 100, not 60 characters. Still, this is totally unnecessary with modern wide displays and usual screen resolutions. The truncation should be completely removed or set to the field's max length.

  • Category set to UI

#3 Updated by Marius BALTEANU 12 months ago

I made a patch that changes the truncation of activity subject/title from 100 characters to activity block max width (using CSS).

It's a small change that will improve this page.

Fixed in r15858. I've preserved the call to #format_activity_title and changed its behaviour.
