Description Aran 2007-10-02 21:01:53 UTC
Could someone please add a global variable (eg $wgTruncatedCommentLength) for specifying the length that long summaries or auto-summaries are truncated to? There's three places in Article.php where this is done in the functions getBlankingAutosummary(), getAutosummary() and the end of delete().
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2007-10-02 23:18:07 UTC
Note that they should all be truncated to the defined field length (255 bytes) fairly consistently, but it wouldn't hurt to use a global var here, per :)
