Limit Length of Announcement Description on Sharepoint 2007 HomePage RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know how to limit the length of an annoucement description on any other page other than the SharePoint Home Page using the Limit Len setting.

    How can I limit the length of the description to, say, 100 characters on the Home Page? I don't see where this setting is stored: MasterPage, Default Layout, etc.

  • Hi,

    I suggest you to follow these steps:

    1. Take the backup of 12 Hive

    2. At the location 12\Template\Features\AnnouncementList\Announce you will find a file schema.xml

    3. Locate the field you want to modify and then add character limitation in that.

    I hope this will help you out.

    Thanks,

  • Thank you, Rahul, that worked. I had to reboot the machine, and once I did that it was good.
