Change number of characters in a pinned topic excerpt

Is there a way to change the amount of text that is displayed on a pinned topic? It looks to me like that the excerpt length is hard coded.

So maybe this is a feature request to be able to change it.


This is not configurable we would need a site setting or some ninja html element added for that.


I am no html ninja.

Is this PR welcome or is my user the only one who wants this?

In 10 minutes, I’m not quite sure where this gets set. Is it on the Rails side or on the front end?

I am not sure, there is only 1 request to date for this, up to @codinghorror if he wants to add a toggle.

I think a plugin is probably the easiest route to get this going for you.
