    Hi,
    I think i've run up against a coded limit in wordpress 2.0.4 and I'd like a little help changing it.

    I have one catagory that is 58 letters long. Currently, I'm only displaing 55 of those letters, and I'd like to tweak wordpress to get me those last few letters. I don't want to change the name of the catagory if I can help it.

    Any suggestions?

    TIA

    At a minimum, you'd have to change the structure of the wp-categories table.
    See:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Database_Description#Table:_wp_categories

    You might also need to make changes to wp-admin/categories.php.

    I know you don't want to hear it, but I'd say change your category description.

    Good Luck

    Thanks for pointing me the right way.

    I know you don't want to hear it, but I'd say change your category description.

    There seems to be a "cat_name" and a "category_nicename". I'm just learning php, tell me if i'm on the right track here. What if I just changed my template to show the "category_nicename", but use the "cat_name" for mySQL querries?

    TIA

    Don't see what could hurt with that approach. Good Luck.
