Exclamation Homepage Link Previews (CONFIRMED)

Hovering over links on the home page shows a preview of the content but doesn't show the full title. So hovering over a news article that says "[SITE] Cool new..." shows a preview of the content of the post, often just 'Source' rather than the complete title "[SITE] Cool new car drives on road Source".

I will see if this is something that can be improved upon. I am unsure whether this is a bug or a system implementation criteria.

Not a bug, standard truncating.

This needs to be changed then, as it isn't standard compared to how it was historically. Look at the home page and how many news articles are truncated. However, hovering over them just shows you whatever the first post says. It means you have to open every article if you want to actually see what the headline is so I end up opening none of them.

I've attached both an image of the existing situation and the way it used to be, both on Huddler and before. The previous vBulletin hover frame was much more useful, and the Huddler one was probably perfect. The existing one is worthless.

Thanks for the information, however with a view to a skin update in the future, this will be reviewed at that point.
