Although we have the so-called option to limit the length of the title, the max length is actually set at 120:

'max_len_q_title' => 120,

qa-include / app / options.php

Any reason?


Update: Thanks Ansgar Wiechers for your answer. I'm building a Q2A site that resembles Who Wants To Be A Millionaire game, but most questions are about 140 characters long.

Admin Posting Maximum length of question title won't work because there is another interference of a Q2A builtin plugin called qa_filter_basic (or similar name). In other words, if you set the value greater than 120, it's still capped at 120. Of course, no choice but to override that plugin.

I tested changing the maximum title length before posting my answer, and it worked as expected. You need to provide more information if it doesn't work for you.

As you may have guessed from the variable name $fixed_defaults that value defines the default for the maximum title length. The effective value can be changed under Admin Posting Maximum length of question title.

Restricting maximum title length is a sensible thing to do, because it encourages users to not put their entire question in the title.
