Truncate Post Title – Updated

This is an updated version of this snippet to remove the ‘…’ if the title is smaller than the $limit.

Paste this function in your functions.php file, and whenever you’re in need of truncating a title, call: customTitle(50), where (50) is the number of characters it allows before truncating!

Code Snippet:

function customTitle($limit) {
    $title = get_the_title($post->ID);
    if(strlen($title) > $limit) {
        $title = substr($title, 0, $limit) . '...';
    }
    
    echo $title;
}
