It would be nice if the location could be hovered over to see the whole text, but it’s truncated without hovering over it.

They should also make it multi line.


I think that generally, the value you put as your Location shouldn’t be that long. Otherwise, its not being utilized as intended by Discourse.

If you have a longer string, I strongly suggest you put it in the “About me” field on your profile preferences.


They should add a character limit in the Location and the Website sections of the profile, and if you try to exceed the limit, then they would tell you to either shorten it or put it in the About section

Edit: made a feature request (sorry if it gets bumped :confused: )
