Hi Akash,

Thanks for your question.

You can adjust the length of the title characters in the plugin by going to Classifieds > Settings, Ad/Listings, Layout and Presentation section and that will affect the widget as well.

Once you have adjusted the number of characters allowed there, all NEW ads will have this limitation UNLESS they are on a fee plan that allows for more characters in the title. 

I noticed when testing this that the old ads do not display with the character limitation on my site, but they do on the backend. I will check with a developer on this and get back to you once I know more. Thanks for your patience.

Hi Akash,

Thanks for your patience here.

I just heard back from the developer regarding the issue you reported, and here is what he said:

Right now, unfortunately, there is no way to limit the length of the title displayed on widgets.

The best alternative I can think of right now is using CSS to do it, but the actual code depends on the website where the modifications is being made and desired result.

To clarify the above response, the Maximum Ad title length and Maximum Ad details length settings are taken into consideration when listings are being created or edited only. Changing them won’t affect the widget’s content.

I hope that helps. If there’s something else I can help you with, please let me know.
