HAHA hello again, I have a new question...

on my search results pagei want to keep the width of the results down to about 450 pixels, because at the moment it displays the address of each search results page and the addresses are really long,

I've changed it before but now i can't remember how to restrict the width of each search result on screen,

any ideas?

cheers.

Hi. If you want to truncate the URL, search for complete_path in the search_function.php file and perhaps do a substr on it.

Hi. Try something like:

'complete_path' => substr($url,0,X)."...",

where X is the number of characters you want to show.
