The block was originally coded by Samuel, a work-experience student under the supervision of Martin Dougiamas.

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for this useful block, but may I know how to change the character limit of discussion's title showing on block? now it just shows 11 characters (UTF-8) of title and I need to change it.

    Hi, Hamed.

    I found a problem with multibyte character support that would have reduced the number of characters (from 20). I've fixed that and uploaded a new version.

    Hi, all.

    I've just checked this with recent versions and it's still working nicely.

    Hi, Ricardo.

    I've just checked with 3.3 and 3.4 and it seems to work nicely still. I've added those versions to the most recent release.
