“Reply To” Combo – When editing a “Reply”

  • Chuckie


    I noticed that when you edit a reply that the “Reply To” combo appears squashed:

    View post on

    So I added CSS to widen the select control and then was confused by the values in the drop-down list being truncated. I decided to examine the HTML (without making any CSS changes) and this is what I get:

    <select name=”bbp_reply_to” id=”bbp_reply_to” class=”bbp_dropdown”>
    <option value=”” class=”level-0″>3189 – Introduction to the Text and Visual Editors</option>
    <option class=”level-1″ value=”3226″ disabled=”disabled”>   3226 – Update The</option>
    The first entry is complete (although not all visible in the actual control). But the rest are all cropped to just a few letters. If I try other forum replies they are all the same.

    Here is another example:

    <select name=”bbp_reply_to” id=”bbp_reply_to” class=”bbp_dropdown”>
    <option value=”” class=”level-0″>2692 – Setting up the new forum – Testing and Change-Log</option>
    <option class=”level-1″ value=”2695″ disabled=”disabled”>   2695 – This is a</option>

    Why is it restricting the data displayed to just a few letters? I tried to research a reason and couldn’t find one.

    Any clarification about this please? Thank you.

    CSS styling for the select field is most likely limited by the theme in length (bbPress default styling does it also), so you need to change the width for that element to 100%.



    This is not just a CSS issue. As you can see from the source HTML it is truncating the text:

    ” 3209 – This is a”

    etc. I can widen it to 100% and it will still only list that chunk.
