Could a javascript be added that counts down how many characters are left before the topic length is maxed out? (displaying a negative number when exceeded)

I keep having to edit back to back, over and over when updating to a more suitable thread caption, due to a lack of a truncation warning.

Posts go in the post field, not the title field. :roll:

I seriously doubt anyone else has this problem.

In my browser (Safari) it limits how many charcters I can type in the subject. For those rare times I want to fit a somewhat detailed subject in that space, I just type a repeated character (like X) until the field fills up, copy it into a text editor, then compose my subject on the next line, using the X characters as a guide to what it must ultimately must fit in.

i am normally used to phpbb3 and vb3 by now,

pbpbb2 doesn't have a warning though...

i doubt Memblers and Tepples will ever upgrade the forum past 2 though, simply because they prolly have already ironed out all the security issues themselves.

phpbb3 isn't as easy to update yourself, imo.

however with phpbb2 it would be much easier to add a simple javascript into the page render that simply shows the delta between max topic length and the current amount of characters entered.
