Post Title limit increased to 140


Hi Everyone,

We've increased the limit of posts title from 60 characters to 140 characters.

We know it's a small change - bigger features are coming your way, stay tuned :)

Although it's small, it's still a nice improvement. It used to be annoying having to constantly shorten the post title if it was too long. Thanks for the update! I'm super excited for the bigger features coming our way!

Yes I agree - while I am happy the title length has been extended and agree 60 characters was very limited there are many other very important features that we have been asking for including super important core features like the ability to reply to a post even, email verification, member to member mail/messaging, member ranking systems (post count and like/dislikes), shadow banning (where troll member does not realize they have been banned, noone can see their posts only them), emojis to enhance the experience like mobile messengers, moderators with powers over certain sections and not others, and the other wishlist features.


I am super excited for these and others to become available soon!


thank you :)

New Posts
  • We just released a feature that allows you to choose how many posts a new user can publish in their first week . The options are 1, 5, or 10 posts per day. Or, you can choose to have “no limit”. The default is 10, but you can change it via Settings. It’s a useful way to combat spam in the forum. At the moment, this only affects new post creation. Comments, replies and likes have no limits. As always, let us know what you think!
  • As you might have heard badges were released with a BLAST. Today badges got even better. We started showing badges next to avatars on posts, comments and replies! This makes badges even more powerful when differentiating the members of your community that deserve recognition! Badges are another way to motivate and engage your community to continue interacting with your forum. They also make your forum look more exciting. You can award members for being the best or doing the most of something, or use them to give thanks and signal a member's positive participation in a community. Forum Admins can assign badges to members in 2 ways: 1. From your Dashboard > Customer Management > Site Members 2. From your Live Site > Member Profile > Three dots on a member > Assign Badges For other related questions head to: https://support.wix.com/en/site-members/creating-member-badges Don’t wait. Let a forum member know that their involvement in your forum is appreciated by sharing a status symbol - give them a badge!
  • Incredibly excited about file upload feature, because this feature makes your posts, comments and replies limitless in terms of content. You can add anything you want to the post! .rar, .zip, .pdf, .mp3, .avi, .mov, .doc, .xls, .ppt, you name it! Even images that are already possible to add, can be added as a file upload so it doesn’t lose even a bit of quality. We’re sure this will unlock all kinds of new interactions on the forum and that’s what is most important! Let us know how you’re planning to use file upload feature.
