how to shorten topic title?

Is there a way to shorten the topic title into a certain number of characters? let's say 20 characters and after that 3 dots. :shock:

OPEN

includes/top_five.php

FIND

Code: Select all

          $template->assign_block_vars('top_five_topic',array(


BEFORE ADD

Code: Select all

      if (utf8_strlen($topic_title) >= 40)
      {
         $topic_title = (utf8_strlen($topic_title) > 40 + 3) ? utf8_substr($topic_title, 0, 40) . '...' : $topic_title;
      }


change the number 40 to whichever max number of characters you want returned.
