We are able to set forum titles for members, using the control panel.  I use this not only for titles but also for medals, which leads to running out of characters for the URL's.

Currently, the title field allows 250 characters.  I'd appreciate it if that could be doubled, so that I can list medals, along with their titles.

In the meantime, to set up long titles and numerous medals (ex here) we've used http://tiny.cc/ to create very small URLs.

I appreciate that and have actually already used it.  I am listing up to 4 medals and a title for some members, though, so I often run out of space.

Gotcha, no ETA though... But it won't be too complicated, so not too long.

Any ETA yet?  Is this just a number that you need to change somewhere in the settings?

I tried to add more characters to a title today to adjust the "vspace" of an image and ran out of room.

Another week has passed with no update or response to this.  Can I please get an update?

No ETA -- ends up being a bit more complicated. The change requires a drop/re-create on the table, and it contains 1.28 million rows.

Actually, scratch that. I forgot that if you do it directly with an "alter table" T-SQL statement instead of trying to do it through the Management Studio GUI, you can do it without requiring a drop/re-create. ETA this Friday or earlier.

Html is no longer working in the title box.  Whenever I enter the html for an image or even a break command, I get the following error:

404 - File or directory not found.

The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.
