For template, FIVE: (a) How to increase the 100 character limit for home "Page Title"? (b) How to make the Page Title wrap to 3 lines?

Question

Guest

The template is here: http://www.squarespace.com/templates/?q=five%20businesses. (a) The Page Title on the mockup is shown as "A First Class Ticket to the Italian Coast". I have a title that's 103 characters, and the editor says the limit is 100 characters. This seems very arbitrary. Is there any way around it?(b) Ideally, I'd like my Page Title to appear on 3 lines overlaying the cover image. Is there anyway to make this happen?Thanks for your help!

The Page Title limit is not template specific - it is a system wide setting. All Squarespace sites have a Page Title limit of 100 characters. There is no workaround. IMHO I wouldn't consider it arbitrary... shouldn't a good title be short and concise?

Thanks, "e"!

Perhaps a generic Page Title is ideally short. However, the Page Title for the FIVE Home Page is a misnomer. Because it overlays the huge image, it can (e.g.) be a short poem that relates to that image.

Is there a way to modify the "system wide setting" for Page Title character limit? I assume by that you mean the FIVE template-wide setting. Is that correct?

No @JerseyGuy - when I say a "system wide setting," I mean all sites on all templates in Squarespace have a Page Title limit of 100 characters. In FIVE, if you want more text in the banner, use a Page Title and a Page Description...you can display both.

Thanks again, e. I see the default Title & Description fonts are vastly different sizes. I can change the Page Title font using the Style Editor; is there any way to change the Page Description font?

@JerseyGuy yes there is, with the Style Editor open, just click on the page description. When you are showing the Page Title / Description in the banner, the font adjustment is labeled 'Site Tagline'
