Group name character limitation


(Haobin Liang) #1

Is it possible that I could customise the length of group name? All groups I am trying to create are over 20 characters…

Can we get this bumped up to 50 characters or something? I have all sorts of crazy abbreviations for groups and it’s getting hard to track what they are. Tonight I was trying to create a group called communication_science. Nope… Too long. :unamused:

Isn’t this subject to the same length restrictions as usernames?


(Sam Saffron) #4

Yes it is … all you need to do to allow long group names is to allow long usernames via site settings.


Is anyone using Discourse in higher ed for courses?

Awesome! Thank you! Wish I’d known this a while ago… :slight_smile:
