An idea.

Is it possible to add in the plugin a better management of the threads meta titles?

I mean, there are some short thread titles and some long ones.
In my case the name of my forum is long and I would like to add it in the thread meta title at the end.
But when the thread title is too long, adding also the complete name of the forum: EX: NameOfTheForum.com
the title will be:
"This is a long thread title about the functionalities of the forum - NameOfTheForum.com"

This for Google is too long and is see as an error. So in this case would be better to use this: NOTF
in this way:
"This is a long thread title about the functionalities of the forum - NOTF"



But for shorter thread titles, is more better to use the entire site name version, that is good for many reasons...
Exemple:
"Short thread title about funcions - NameOfTheForum.com"



So the plugin could count the number of the characters are in a thread title and if are too long of a certain numer (long thread title) it will add the short name of the site "NOTF" instead of long one "NameOfTheForum.com"
and for all those are short (thread titles), it wil add the complete name of the site in this way "NameOfTheForum.com".

So in this way is possible to maximize the good presence on the web by showing the complete name title of the site when possible and prevent that a thread with a long title and so with a number of characters that exceed the maximum characters allowed by Google for meta titles, will generate a penalty (from Google) for that content and also for the site, for a too long meta title.

Great news. Another idea for this. The meta title can be triggered to match the exact number of characters that google need. So all the same as explain in my previous post, but also if the title is really long the plugin could cut off also the short name of the site.
So we can have 3 different case:
Threat Title + Complete name of the forum
Thread Title + Short name of the forum
Thread Title

In this way the plugin should present one of this kind of meta title, different for each thread auto builded depending from the lenght of the thread title.
If you make in this way this is also more better. ;)

So the sytstem can assign the right "Name of the site" in this way in these 3 different situations:

"Short thread title about functions - NameOfTheForum.com"

"This is a long thread title about the functionalities of the forum - NOTF"

"This is a very very long thread title about the functionalities of the forum"


In this way all the meta titles are always setted in best way is possible without generate penallty for too long thread title. :)

Great SyTry it works, less something.

First of all the is working only on the threads, but it should works for each links. For example I have noted that it doesn't works on the nodes links.

Also, it should count also the thread prefix, because it seems that when is added is not counted by this function to compile the right title.
