Okay, thanks!  Smiley

It's actually the Off Topic Spoiler compatible Mod... The normal Off Topic Mod doesn't change that line.

I never would have thought that another mod would have made such a small modification in an area.

I apologize, Jet Li, for thinking that was a problem with your mod.

On the other part, maybe it is the same problem others mentioned that led to an update ... or maybe I'm cursed.

Either way, I have installed the newest version, rebuilt, and created new threads with topic descriptions in all three boards. I will give it a couple of days to see if any vanish or if they all remain. As I said initially ... the problem may have already been solved with the update. I had just noticed today that several of my topic descriptions had vanished, which is how I came in and learned about the update.

I generally like this mod and thanks to Jet Li for the work, however!

One thing I'm not keen on is the way the topic description is shown in the thread. To my mind it would be better under the topic title in the same bar (if you know what I mean). Where it is and the size of the font kind of takes over from the thread title, which can be confusing.

Personally I'd prefer to remove the description from the thread all together - can I do this?

Please don't get me wrong, I do like the mod, just not this particular aspect.

John

Another problem to report in connection with this.

I just upgraded one of my two production forums to 2.3.1, and this is one of the mods I have used on it.

The mod seems to mostly work.

But I went into the admin center and set the max length for the topic description to 250 characters. And the setting is being saved (I can leave the admin center and come back, and the 250 setting is still being shown.)

But when I go into my forum and create a new thread and type in a lengthy topic description, both in the category index and in the thread display itself, the topic description is getting cut off at around the 100th character, and not using the max length I entered in.

Board is my science fiction forum, link in my signature. ... or will be once I go reset it, since this forum was updated, and that trashes signatures.

Making progress, but not there, yet.

Now, if you put in a long topic description, it will accept it.

But if you go in to edit a thread, it then cuts the description it was allowing back to the 100 character or so limit.

So whatever had to be done where a post is being created must also need to be done where a post is being edited.

Also, just for information's sake, this mod is partly incompatible with the Reason for Edit mod. This mod needs to be installed first, then the installation works. (Step 20 of this mod fails if reason/edit is installed first, because one step of reason/edit inserts itself between lines 1 and 2 of this step's search.)

I don't know what to tell you. It works for long descriptions until you go in and edit the post, then it cuts them again.

I'm sorry ... I hate being the bearer of bad tidings!  Embarrassed
Edited:
Unless you mean you fixed it a second time.

Downloaded again, and this time the longer description stays, even after editing! You got it!

Thank you!

What about the possibility of using YaBBC codes in the description (I just like having access to bold or italic for emphasis.
