Truncate long urls in posts

Long URLs could be truncated in posts. Sometimes Joomla URLs are really long and mess up the template. It would be neat to have a feature to truncate long URLs so that the link would be long one, but the things inside element would be made shorter.

For example a long URL

http://www.mikkosoft.fi/index.php?option=com_openwiki&Itemid=34&id=advanced_profile_control_faq#what_should_i_do_when_i_have_a_problem_with_my_site

cound be truncated as

http://www.mikkosoft.fi/index.php?option=com_openwiki...problem_with_my_site

Hi,

I guess your wish is similar to my question:
[url]http://www.bestofjoomla.com/component/option,com_fireboard/func,view/id,19488/catid,69/[/url]

If sbdy or the editor itself would be able to insert just a description for the URL/link and display this text, instead of the URL, it would be possible, I guess.

So you have got my vote :)

Is there any real solution to this? The link listed above does not work.

How does this forum thread use a scroll feature on long URLs whereas my forums do not? Is there a configuration option that I must tend to?

Long URLs or code is blowing my template out and making the entire page scroll over 2000 pixels horizontally.

I would like to be able to use TinyMCE as the editor. This would also give the insert URL button.

I have this same issue. I have tried many ways to limit the URL/Link wrap length to no avail. Can someone please assist?

I would rather have the scroll feature. I just added this mambot to my forum and it still pushes everything to the left.

There is a bug in the code. You can get a fixed version at http://www.mikkosoft.fi/downloads/index.php

It is free and open source, but you need to register on the site to download.
