Increase the length of the issue title

Hello collective brain,

I need to increase the length of issue titles. We’ve taken on a new journal that has some fairly lengthy titles for issues. It seems to limit title length to about 250 characters. I assume I can lengthen this in a template file… does anyone know which file? I can’t see to track this down.


Hi @UNBC_Library,

The issue title is limited here, in the Editor’s create/edit issue form: ojs/issueData.tpl at ojs-stable-2_4_6 · pkp/ojs · GitHub

I think you’ll just need to expand the limit there; the database should already be prepared to handle longer data.
