Limit Post Titles


Limit post titles with a character limit within the WordPress dashboard. The plugin works with default post types (posts/pages) as well as any custom post types defined by plugins or themes.

Simply set the character limit in the plugin’s settings pane and check which post types you wish to limit.

The title is limited within the dashboard only and pre-existing titles may need to be updated to match the new limit.


  • Settings Pane
  • Limit count on the post title


Will this work with custom post types?


My post titles don’t seem to be limited…

The plugin only limits within the dashboard. Posts added before the plugin was activated will need to be modified to match the newly imposed limit.

Great plugin!


Excellent and useful plugin. Would be great if you could also make a plugin limiting the length of pretty permalink.
