Remove post title length limit


My post title is being cut off at 8 words, how can I remove the limit so that the whole title will always be shown?

It worked for the single post view, but when I’m on the main home page the full title is still not displayed. How can I make it work on both?

Thanks again!

Hi there,

Could you edit the following files:

shapely\template-parts\content-grid-small.php line 48
shapely\template-parts\content-grid-wide.php line 55
shapely\template-parts\content-search.php line 48

and remove the wp_trim_words function so the whole title is shown.

Also remove the wp_trim_words function from this file:

shapely\template-parts\content.php line 59

So essentially you should have something similar to this:

<?php echo get_the_title(); ?>

Hope this helps.

Hi @wanderingnarrator,

Always do those edits in a child theme, else it will be removed during the theme update.

Let us know if you have any other questions,


Thanks so much for all of your help and clear instructions, I made the edits in a child theme and it worked without issue!

Howdy :slight_smile:

Is there anything else or can we mark this question as resolved?
