Topic title restrictions

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.

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

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.

@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.
