When looking at a large style Calendar, event names are truncated at 11 characters. See screenshot below. Is there any way to change this to wrap instead, or a way to change the font size? (without doing any custom coding) Any improvement in V10?
You would either need to write add some CSS to adjust the size of the text to your theme's Custom Styles. Or modify the calendar widget to adjust the length of the truncate. There is no built in option anywhere to control this setting.
Thanks Matt, that's a bummer. We'd rather not do customization if at all possible.
Maybe an enhancement for a future version?
Altering a widget or adding some CSS to the theme isn't really a huge customization since the platform fully supports it and exposes it in a way that is intended for small modifications just like this.
Thanks Luke. Would this be flagged as a "minor customization"?
I don't suppose you'd be willing to share the code and specific locations to change, to make such changes in V8.0?
I wouldn't even really consider it a customization if it can be accomplished with CSS only. I don't have an 8.0 install up and running but if you go into the control panel and edit the theme, there is a tab for Custom Styles, you can just put a few lines of CSS in there to fix it.
I'd have to look at the widget though to see if they're truncating the calendar title in code or CSS. If you have to alter the widget, then yes, you could consider it a very minor customization - however, you could duplicate the widget, edit the copy and drop the copy on your calendar page, then theoretically you won't be altering anything, but just replacing a widget with a copy.
