Limit Post Titles

Descripcion

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.

FAQ

Will this work with custom post types?

Yep!

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.

Tested with WordPress 5.3.2. Just set a limit and select the post types you want to apply it to. When entering the title of a new post, the number of remaining characters is displayed at the right side of the text box. When the number of characters exceeds the limit, the number goes negative and turns red.

Thank you. Still works with Version 5.2.3 and custom post types.

A very helpful UI candy for those cases when you think long titles will ruin design. Clear and unobtrusive.
