Topic title restrictions


#1

Continuing the discussion from DataModification overload for AddSelectedRowsAction makes no sense:

I don’t know what would cause Discourse to block that title; maybe one of the developers can answer this.


#2

@neil, can you tell us why this topic title wasn’t accepted by Discourse?


#3

It turns out that one ways Discourse checks topic titles is to look at the length of each word. There’s a site setting called “max_word_length” that causes that title to be rejected. You can increase it to avoid this problem.


#4

@samrueby, I just increased max_word_length per Neil’s advice. I changed it from 30 to 100 characters, which should take care of the problem for good.
