This addon is a plugin. You need to extract the entire folder to your /plugins folder to install it.
This will allow you to display x character under the Discussion title. By default, it is 300 characters. You can edit the file and change this. This is a beta version, so please test and send me your feedback.
This new version 1.0.2 adds options to display the entire post in a mouseover window using BoxOver or a popup window using iBox. Both of these other extensions (iBox and BoxOver) must be activated in order to use their functionality.
There are some options in the default.php file that can be changed to help you obtain the display you want.
$Context->Dictionary['ExLength'] = 180; $Context->Dictionary['WhichStyle'] = 2; // 1=iBox; 2=Boxover $Context->Dictionary['BoxHeight'] = 400; // for iBox $Context->Dictionary['BoxWidth'] = 600; // for iBox $Context->Dictionary['ClickMe'] = "(click me to see entire post)"; $Context->Dictionary['MouseOver'] = "(mouse over to see entire post)";
Change the ExLength to adjust the number of characters to display in the discussion grid. Change the WhichStyle to "1" to use iBox and "2" to use BoxOver. Change the BoxHeight and BoxWidth to adjust the iBox window size. Change the ClickMe description for the prompt you want to see for iBox. Change the MouseOver description for the prompt you want to see for BoxOver.
To-Do: I am working on an admin for adjusting the above items.
