BBPress limit Topic length on widget

  • Hey, so i have looked for quite a while but couldn’t find anything on this…

    So regarding the BBPress widget “Topic Lists” where by it lists (in my case) the 5 newest topics made on my forum. I have made a custom background image for this, but i get a problem when a topic is a long length and it carries on over to 2 lines.

    Basically i need a way to limit these topic lengths just on the widget to something like 10 characters long and then “…” so they will stay on 1 line.

    Is there a way to do this quickly and easily? I am very new to this, but i am picking things up fast!

    Thanks in advance!

    You would probably have to look into either, building your own plugin to create the widget (Which you could do quickly by replicating the bbPress widget code) or customize the bbPress widget.

    This could also be achieved with css, by having a fixed height and width and then adding overflow hidden, but you would have a little difficulty with the … part.

    Good luck!
